This one sliced my by bait as usual but I got him
on the second strike, hooked in about 3ft of water and actually saw the strikes.

Ran into some Omilu's on the reef. 2 for 3 and then the Needlefish started grabing the jig. Check out the blue on the fins. Kinda like the one in wailua boy's last picture. She had eggs in her, pre-spawn? or on the process? Had several unidentified bait fish in the gut, so probably gearing up for the spawn. Hard fightin indeed! Don't think I could land a 5 lb'er on my light rig. This'n probably 1 - 2 lbs.

Fishing tackle is an art form and all fish caught on the right tackle are"Gfish"!

Nice.  The perfect size for eating.  The blue ones don't seem to have a lot of iodine taste like the white ones.

We don't have a lot of kaku in our neighborhood.  Every once in a while one will take up residence in a spot and will cut you off every time you pass that spot until you realize it is kaku.
