Where do you spear on Oahu?

Aloha Hawaiian Spearos!

I am a California Spearo coming to visit Oahu for just 5 days.

Would any of you guys give up your secret location for a tourist?
I am no threat to your spot, as I don't live there and I'm leaving Hawaii after my dive. I just want to bring a nice fish back to the hotel for my wife!

Also, Lobster season is over in California. What about Hawaii? Can I take Lobster this month? Size minimum and bag limit?

Please give up a little good intel... I will do it for you when you come to California!
When you enter the Ocean, you enter the Food Chain!

The worst day of fishing, is better than the best day of working!

Re: Where do you spear on Oahu?

I would try Shark's cove near the North Shore. When i was over there with a friend who grew up on Oahu we would frequent there. Good luck on the lobster, they are more legend now from what i understand I am used to Fl lobster which hole up in tiny hole in the limestone bottom. In Hawaii the ledges are insane and deep, not to mention all the old lava tubes that the lobsters can hole up in. I was there a total of 2 weeks (a week on Oahu and a week on Kauai) and only saw one lobster and it was small. Research the fish to shoot over there cause it surprised me. They target many ornamentals that I was not used to shooting at. If you get a parrot fish (they call it Uhu) than you struck gold! Also youtube how to catch octopus if you want to target them they are fun and tasty! Good Luck!

Not sure about back in the day, but Sharks Cove is a marine sanctuary.

Shark's Cove is most definitely a sanctuary now. Google the Hawaii DLNR website for maps of the areas where you can and cannot take fish.

Re: Where do you spear on Oahu?

I have no problems sharing this location... It's not in anybody's backyard, and hardly anybody seems to go there anyways. 40'-90'. Trophy jacks. We call 'em uluas here.

Btw, forget about looking for lobster around here. Chances are very good you won't even see a single one. It's nothing like San Diego.

Paul, save some of those Ulua holes for me, I'll be out there June 16-22 to try and find one with you.
If God didn't want us to eat animals, He wouldn't have made them out of meat!
