Using This Ancient Delicacy to Catch Fish!

Most locals LOVE that aroma of freshly picked Limpet Opihi meat! Just looking at it & smelling that salty scent makes you salivate. So why would you share this expensive hard to procure treat with a fish that you plan on releasing anyway? Hmmm, good point.

Using Limpets is a bait i'm sure the Hawaiians once used. Back then everything was plentiful because their Kapu system of enforcing & regulating their resources was much akin to the American Indians. They were all connected to the land. Nowadays when a local hears the word Opihi, they start salivating because it's a mouth watering delicious treat that most would covet & not share it with others, including fish.

Yes Sir sometimes you have to fish in the rain. Enjoyed the video. A bad day on the water makes a good day a whole lot better. thumb
