Ho’omakaukau & Pau Hana Friday

A Prep for the Upcoming Weekend.

Okay, okay, I got lazy this week and combined the Thursday (Ho’omakaukau – Get Ready) and Friday (Pau Hana – Finished Work) together into one post. But this post is filled with information for the avid island angler.

Tide Information

I’ve been lucky enough to have HawaiiTides.com Daily Tide Predictions on the blog and along with Weatherbug’s forecasts contribute to a one-stop reminder before heading out to the “ka nahele or forest”. See right sidebar for Hawai’i & O’ahu forecasts.

If you need tide information for a specific location, just visit their site and click on their “locations” link. Don’t forget to bookmark their site (as well as this one) and if you find them useful, kokua them and make a donation.

Tips

I found these tips through the Field & Stream Magazine. If you like their tips, make sure you subscribe to their newsletter or pick up a subscription for $10/yr. Now that’s cheap and I’ve learned a ton of stuff from the magazine over the years. Not just for fishing but for practical stuff like survival skills on the ocean and in the wilderness. I’ve added some “artful” descriptions and sorted out the fishing-specific ones, so I hope it helps. I particularly like the idea of the golf club gaff. Hmmmm. . .:

Monofilament Floss Dispenser Holder
Flytying Thread Taggle Avoider
Organize Hooks with Safety Pins
Avoid Flyline Memory
Golf Club Gaff
Fishing Spool Koozie
Letter Opener Braided Line Slicer
Chum Bomb Slinger

Fillet Knife Bobber

Tournaments

No fishing tournaments this weekend.
