Even with high water levels, a drop in water temperature from 82 to 74 degrees and water visibility going from 4 feet to less than a foot........ the fishing action has been pretty good..
Chris is still in the hunt for the Tournament of Champions. The top 10 anglers in our club (Hawaii Freshwater Fishing Assoc) fish a special year end tournament. The largemouth bass action was good enough to keep the competition keen. Best bass lure, a white lizard.
The cold water stopped the peacock bass from chasing shad, but didn't hurt their appetite. Craig Johnston, visiting family from the mainland, took his two boys for a day of fishing. Craig and Logan are the fly fishermen and caught some peacock bass cruising the shoreline. They missed some really nice fish. Eleven year old Conner used a light spinning rod and live bait to land fish in the 3 1/2 to 4 pound range. Several times The fly fishermen would spot a large fish or have one chase their fly. Quick as a flash, young Conner would toss a small live tilapia at the excited peacock bass for an instant hook up and the fight was on. Next time he said he would Dad and older brother catch some of the big ones. .... LOL
