A fishing trip that went incredibly right. Every once in a while you hear about someone landing a big one on light tackle. Today, it was my turn. While fishing for papio [Papio: Jack Crevalle/Ulua under 10 lbs.] on the eastern coast of Kalaupapa, a big one bites.
14 pound test monofilament main line, 25 pound test monofilament leader, 6′ medium/light rod, Penn 5500 spin fisher reel. The fish? Somewhere in the 30-40 pound range.

[Admin: Nice compilation of catching ulua by "whipping" showing that hooking is only half the problem, then you gotta find a way to land 'em!]

[Admin: Love their home-made long handled gaff and "fish-pack" for safely and easily carrying out their catch! Kudos guys!]

Late afternoon bite. kiwell with Trinidad 40 loaded with 60lb test. Only got about half the fight on film. Mahalo’s to Brian, Bryson, and Tisha.
[Admin: I might have rated this video higher, but the cameraman seemed to want to shoot the sky as much as any fishing action.]

Whipping for omilus.7′ Fenwick HMG Spinning Rod, Shimano Stradic FI, fitted with 12# mono, 2 ft leader 50# mono with a kaku lure…the ulua( I say this because the omilu would have really spooled me in less than 2 mins) , chases the kaku lure, crashes it 3x and misses..I slow down with jerking motions of the plug..the ulua returns and hits the lure on the bottom of the wave, I set the hook and its stripping line ever so smoothly..”pressure” means I am palming the spool…listen to how fast it strips the line when I am at the backing…about 3 seconds to take out 20 yds…fun and the adrenalin RUSH!!! Awessome!! .
[Admin: Gotta love how he's "going to let 'em run!"...like he had a chance at stopping it! lol Loss the fish, but like he said, what a rush!]
