2017 Big-Fish List update

Updated: 
February 27, 2017 - 12:05am

The Big-Fish List recognizes the biggest fish caught on rod and reel (except opakapaka and onaga, for which we’ll accept hand line catches) in West Hawaii waters for 2017 in each of 22 categories. Catches are listed by species, weight, angler, skipper, boat and date. The list is updated every Sunday throughout the year (copyright 2017 by Jim Rizzuto).

If a catch has been overlooked, call 885-4208 or email rizzutojim1@gmail.com.
