Molokai....hmmmm....Isn't that where the leper colony is? Yes it is.
The leper colony may be what most people associate with the Island, to anglers in the know Molokai is becoming synonymous with world class bone fishing.
Its a small island, roughly 40 miles long and 10 miles wide with a population hovering around 7,500. The North shore of the island is extremely rugged, home to some of the largest sea cliffs in the world. The South shore has a fringing reef that extends almost the length of the island. This unique reef creates the salt, mud and coral flats where bonefish hunt for food and fly anglers hunt for bonefish.
Why Molokai? Here are few reasons:
Serenity - Anglers will find the ocean uncrowded. There is only 1 hotel on the island making tourist scarce. People that know about the fishing keep it on the down low.
Access - For those on a family vacation on Maui or Oahu they can take 1 or 2 days to hop over and fly fish. Its a short flight from either island. There is a daily ferry boat that runs from Lahina to Kaunakakai.
Adventure - Experiencing Molokai is a little like stepping back in time. I can't think of a place that has changed less in the last 30 years.
Spend the day with a great guide - You get to spend the day on the water with your bonefish guide... me. We will have a great day on the water looking for fish and talking about this unique Hawaiian island.
