Default Surf fishing Hawaii

Hi, all...I am heading to Hawaii this Saturday for a low budget vacation , am wondering if any of ya"ll have ever done any surf fishing over there?Are there any unusual danger's a person should be aware of? I know to wear tennis shoe's when wading in the surf, so as to avoid coral cuts, but anything else?I also watch for sneaker wave's, of course, but, anything else? What kind of fish will I be catching? I plan on using sqid, primarily.Not sure when I am coming back, packing several rods, tent, hammock, camping stuff.Please help me out with a reply, any ifisher's in Hawaii?

I am heading to Maui soon, too, and from what I gather, you rig for U'lua pretty much exactly like you would rig up for sturgeon. Dacron leader, half hitches on the bait, with either the weight on bottom and bait on a sliding rig (they call it slider fishing I think) or standard setup with the weight on the slider.

Just find some deep water and then try not to get pulled in when you hook up!

This I have gathered from the internets, but hopefully a local will chime in and set us both straight. Tight lines!

Here's a thread from not too long ago that I described how I did it when I went over there and fished with a local. http://www.ifish.net/board/showthread.php?t=350361

Which island?

My brother lives on the big island near Hilo and they spearfish alot and don't have problems with Ciguatera poisoning. They won't eat Roi (peacock grouper), but kill every one they can find, as the invasive grouper is a known cig hotel, and it's doing a number on the local fish.

If you are going to be on the big island stop by the S. Tokunaga store in Hilo, they will set you up. If you are elsewhere, I would stop in to a local shop and spend a few bucks, they will probably help you out.

I spent 4 years stationed on Oahu. shore fishing is very slow there. only bait shop I ever found was in Haliewa on the north shore. squid is the primary bait over there. One tip though, while most of the islands are pretty friendly, Oahu has a few spots us mainlanders need to watch out for. mostly the west shore.

here is a good resource for ya. met some good folks on here.
