    Nice fish, Mingo!

    I'm on Oahu right now- have been since December- and did a quick hop to Molokai for a day of bonefishing (flew there, fished, flew back in one day).

    Next time you're out this way shout me and we can go fish together.

    Cheers,
    J

    Ever fished the flats of Molokai? The south side of the island has lots of flats to fish for bonefish.

    Yes, once, and one day offshore. I can't wait to go back. Molokai is a time capsule glance back into the old Hawai'i.

    I stayed there for two weeks out on the west end. But, traveled most of island. One little town of about 3,500 that must go back to the 1940's in looks. No too much commercialism going on. I really thought it was probably like Hawaii before 1960. No one gets in a hurry! Only fast food is a Sub Way and a local hamburger venture. They have the longest beach in Hawaii, 3 miles long - 6 miles walk. I would walk that whole beach from about 6 AM to 8 AM up and back and never see anyone but me. I liked it. My wife said there wasn't enough to do. They had golf, fishing, swimming, hiking, turkey hunting, deer hunting, etc. What else could you want. :D

    Hey Mingo,
    Good to see that view offshore from Kailua Kona again. Last time I was on a boat out there was 37 years ago working as deckhand pursuing Marlin.
    One of the best parts of the job was skipping a fly behind the boat at daylight for little Aku (skipjack) - we used them as bait. A 3 or 4 pounder was about the right size bait for a big Marlin.
    I didn't see all those fish species you always show - fantastic.
    Are you seeing any snow on the volcanoes yet?

    Dude that's awesome. For a Hilo boy, seeing those fish is making me home sick.
