...bring/use wire bite leaders...

I spent time in the Pacific during some of my formative years in the Air Farce back in the 70's...Guam, Wake, Midway, Thailand, Clark AFB, etc (not supposed to talk about Cambodia)...
Lots of toothy critters to cut you/break you off!
I'll bet D.Fix would have some interesting insights (although, I suspect he used hand grenades in lieu of 9wts)...
Lots of Jacks, Wahoo, Sharks, and BCoudas...
JUST DO IT!...and take lots of pictures...and write us a report!

Deerhaawk, where on Kauai?

We have a timeshare at Hanalei - never bothered to fish there since its supposed to be time with wife - however I did see some schools of small bonefish on one of the reefs so I'll be packing the gear next time.

TROUT, IN HAWAII?

Adrian,
In '78 I was part of a contingent of surfers from the San Diego/North County area that moved to Hawaii. We all shared a pole house in Princeville (the ones down at the end of the main drive on the left, just above Hidaways Beach) We were all into living off the land and spending as little money as possible. Hence, all that was available, we took advantage of, including this square tail trout species (as far as I remember, a warm water version of the Rainbow, in fact thats what they call it)
Two web sites, www.hawaii.gov/dlnr/dsp/dsp.html and www.hawaii.gov/dlnr/dar/regbk/index.html should give you the info that you need.
They say that the trout is only available in Waimea Stream, and I am not inclined to go against the DLNR/Hawaii, but the Wailua river and Huilea stream are good bets, because Kauai has Large/Small mouth Bass and the dreaded Tucunare as well!
Licenses are available-7+30 day Tourist as well as Non-Res. So just get up early, kiss the wife on the cheek, grab a papaya off the lanai, and hit the water!
And I remain, in my "slipas and puka shell necklace", your friend with a net full of Tako...
