Fishing and a bite to eat at Kua Aina
It’s been a catch and release kind of week. Meaning, we haven’t been able to bring anything up worthy of the dinner table recently. On most days the only bite I get is of whatever I have for lunch. So sad.
However, there have been a couple hook ups. At the first beach (picture above) I brought up a little eel in the afternoon. Disappointed without any fish, we tried some simple handpole fishing and picked up a kupipi…
and a bunch of mamo. All went quickly back into the water to enjoy another day.
At this other place we tried, there were a lot of nibbles on the line but no big bites.
The only thing I reeled in was this scary looking thing. I had to use the forceps to take out the hook and throw it back in.
On the bright side, it’s been fun going around to our various favorite spots around the island. The other day when we were on the North Shore we stopped at Kua Aina in Haleiwa for some lunch.
I haven’t had one of these for a long, long time and forgot how huge they were! I got the grilled eggplant and peppers sandwich while he had the BLT with avocado.
I love those Kua Aina grilled peppers!
