Braid Sensitivity = Success For Kayak Fishing

First Offshore Kayak Fishing Trip Of The Year


Kayak Fishing

I went out for my first kayak fishing trip of the year after being out of the kayak fishing scene during my fire fighter recruit training. Being that it is still a bit early for the summer fishing season here on Oahu, I decided to chance my luck and fish. 

After landing a small mahi mahi on a live bait and with the surface bite being slow, I decided to try some new techniques that I have not gotten a chance to become efficient in yet. I ended up saving the day with an 18 pound uku or job fish using some bottom fishing techniques. 

My Bullbuster braided fishing line offered so much sensitivity that I could feel each nibble from the small reef fish to the big uku that bit my line. The sensitivity really helped me to maximize my fishing time without having an empty hook 180 feet down on the bottom. It was a good way to start my season and I look forward to the rest of the season. Aloha.
