If you are vacationing in Hawaii, why not include a fishing trip adventure, and catch one of the most tasty fishes of Hawaiian.
In addition to endless sun, sand, ocean waves, and tropical weather, you have to think about foods to eat. How exciting it would be if you could catch your own dinner by going on a fishing adventure? Imagine the joy of reeling in one of these most tasty and popular fishes of Hawaii.
It is sometimes called the Dolphin fish, or Dorado. The mahimahi is a favorite among seafood lovers world-wide. The mahimahi often gathered in schools and usually found throughout the Pacific, and in warm water of Florida.
This fish has a light pink flesh which turns white once cooked, moist, flaky, and mild flavored.
The ulua is also known as pompano, but when it is less than 10 pounds, it is known as Papio. This is the ultimate game fish in Hawaii since it can be caught off shore by rod and reel.
Ono is also known as Wahoo, and means good to eat in Hawaiian. This fish has a white, flaky, delicate, sweet, and lean taste. The ono becomes popular in recent years when chefs look for substitution to the mahimahi.
