    First official look at a 1-1/2yr project from Okuma Fishing Tackle USA. The Hawaiian Custom Series Custom Surf Rod. Thanks to John Bretza for seeing it through! Okuma USA now has a 3pc Surf Casting Rod for NE Strippers to Southern Drum anglers. The main emphases was on Hawaii for day & night reef/sand shore casters targeting Jacks to Bonefish. We went through several prototypes as we wanted it to be perfect. Currently i'm using the prototypes, so when my shipment arrives a full detailed video presentation will be made.

    There's more to these rods & the finished products will have in installed.



    Today i decided to hit the reef to do some live baiting. Yesterday the King's Tide came in flooding parts of town. In a few days Hurricane Doug was expected to hit us full on. Fish can sense these types of natural disturbances but i still took the chance. So i hiked in an hour before sunrise to set-up. I threw out my rigs using frozen squid "ika". Then tried to hook some live bait (noticed i said tried).

    I couldn't hook the desired species i wanted. So by noon i left for home. I got crispy fried from the UV direct, off the sand & water. The loose sand taxed me as well. But hopefully you'll enjoy my outing before Hurricane Doug hits us in a few days.
