February Fishing Report

I know we have not posted a fishing report for several months now and I apologize.  My mother was ill and I was tending to her before she passed away so something had to give and that was the fishing report for several months.  I am working on getting back on track, so here's a start:

Bass fishing on Kauai has been good this past month for largemouth bass.  Tom has been catching largemouth in the 4-6lb range with a few as large as 7lbs.  He is also catching smallmouth bass and freshwater papio.  The Peacock Bass are not biting yet, they usually don't come up to bite until warmer weather in May and into the summer months.

For the offshore fishing, now is getting into the good time for Mahimahi and Striped Marlin with that bit even better as we get into the month of March.  Striped Marlin are like skinny Marlin and generally run in the 100lb range.  If you can find a nice pile of Mahi's, you can come up with multiple hookups and the stripies seem to like to hang together so multiple catches of Striped Marlin have been reported.  Blue Marlin, Ono and Ahi are also around, just not in as good of numbers as we see in the summer months, but boats are catching some.  A 600lb plus Blue Marlin was reported caught off Oahu in February, so they are out there.   It's much warmer in Hawaii than on the mainland, so take off those snow boots and come fishing in Hawaii in your flip flops!
