Honolulu, Hawaii, August 3, 2016
A report from Eric for mikescatchreport.com
I just returned from a trip to Micronesia but since it was going to be a nice morning tide, SteveT and I decided to go try our luck fly fishing the flats.

We met at the park around 7:15am. The tide was headed down and was bottoming out around 10am. We made our way out to our usual spot with SteveT fishing the inside aa I moved further out towards the breakers.

I got the first fish, hooking up with a Yellow Dot Trevally (
papio) and then a Blue Fin Jack. We started to make our way back to the parking lot with SteveT still fishing inside.

He finally hooked into a nice 4 pound bonefish that gave him a good fight and I got into a good size Mongoose Fish (Cigar Wrasse), which are
supposed to be good eating, and another papio. SteveT managed to hook up into another, smaller bone while I caught more Yellow Dot papio.
There are lots of small papio around now because the oama (baby Goatfish) are back in town.

We fished for a while more before deciding to call it a day.
