A month in HI

Dive deep, throw sand, shoot fish, but above all respect the flag!

A month in HI

Postby Fishja » June 30th, 2014, 1:07 pm

Was able to spend a month back at home after graduating college. I dove all over the island of Oahu. First day back at home I was able to get out to the spot I grew up diving and ended up having a great time with lots of fish. The weather took a turn for the worst and got really snotty with heavy winds and rain. I was still able to get out and dive almost everyday, but the conditions sucked (for Hawaii). Found some really nice new grounds with huge caves and lots of life. I even found a monster cave loaded with bugs (For those of you who know how hard legal lobsters are to find on Oahu). Shot a monster Moana Kali that went just over 5 pounds. To make a long story short I shot a bunch of fish, ate really really really well, and spent a month in the ocean.

OH YEAH, I shot a 35# bull Mahi on my last day!

Nice mahi! But I think I'd rather eat that Kali. Congrats

Let's see some more of your underwater shots or video footage. Were you mainly shore diving, from the boat, or both? Great stuff!
