The wife and I are headed to Maui and Honolulu for Christmas get together with her family. I’ve seen that in past trips you caught reef fish on Kastmasters and such. What kind of gear and licensing do I need to bring to sneak away from the in-laws and catch some fish?
Yo, DJ Sab-A-Loooow,
I just took a 7-foot trout rod with 6-pound test and some 1/4-ounce Kastmasters one year. This summer, I had a ball with white Flukes for larger meat-eating critters and then slow-crawled Carolina-rigged Berkley GULP! Sandworms for all sorts of interesting fish. Take several bags as many of those reef fish have teeth!
As fas as the license goes, I looked all over the internet and asked the sporting goods person at Wal Mart over there and couldn’t find anything about needing a license while shore fishing in the ocean. You for sure need one in freshwater, though…
