While scouting a new shore fishing location on Maui’s south shore, I had a really good feeling about this point in Makena where there’s a nice surge on the rocks and a great area to land a fish. So I head out on the point with my bucket of live bait. I get a lot of action using live bait. I rig one up on a float. First cast right outside the surge, about 3 seconds after the float hit the water, it disappeared quickly. Line immediately started peeling off the reel with my pole bent over. I knew I had a nice fish on. And it ended up being a prized omilu about 4 lbs. which is the average size. Pretty awesome way to start the day!
