Throwback To The First Ulua Of 2015

Author: Jaren Luke

Nice Oahu Ulua Despite Moon Conditions

 First Ulua Of 2015

"Prime" Night's for Uluas

  Our "prime" nights during Ulua season are 3-7 nights after the full moon. Although it was considered an "off night" (about 4 days before the full moon), I heard the familiar, unmistakable sound of my stainless steel bell around 10:30 pm signaling a strike on my pole. After fighting the fish for a few minutes, I felt the heart sinking feeling of my mainline rubbing on the sharp reef on the bottom. However, after some patience, the fish luckily swam free and I was able to land my first Ulua of the season weighing in at 13 pounds. It was a little on the smaller side but it was a welcome addition to the dinner table that week. Upon further examination of my mainline I discovered that the line was only a little rough from the contact with the reef and still plenty of strength left to last the rest of the fight. Always nice to have equipment I can trust 100% when out on the water! Aloha.

Check out some other articles on the Bullbuster Community About Prepping To #SpendMoreTimeFishing:

Why Getting Your Fluorocarbon In Bulk Can Help You Spend More Time Fishing -  One way to get ready for an intense season of spring fishing is to pre rig leaders. If you are a series fisherman get a bulk spool of fluorocarbon and get tying! A 50 yard skein is going to be a waste of time.  Get out a box of ziplock and a sharpie and get rigging!  


Why Buying Braid In Bulk Can Help You Spend More Time Fishing -  We all know braid is more expensive than mono but it also lasts a whole lot longer.  When you buy your braid in bulk you get economies of scale but thats not it!  You actually end up saving yourself a heck of a lot of time re-spooling when you use it as backing and only replace your mono topshot.  If you are serious fishermen, this is the way to go. 


Getting Your Swivels In Bulk Packs Can Help You Spend More Time Fishing -   Again it all comes down to preparation.   Get a bulk pack of swivels and keep on box on your boat or travel case, and keep the other pack safely tucked away in your fishing closet to avoid any corrosion.
