Fishermen return to Diamond Head waters

By Star-Advertiser staff and the Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 10:51 p.m. HST, Jan 01, 2012


Fishermen spent New Year's Day returning to the waters between the Waikiki War Memorial Natatorium to the Diamond Head Lighthouse.

The area is open again for fishing until December 31.

The state allows fishing in even-numbered years and prohibits it in odd-years to allow fish stocks to replenish.

The Waikiki-Diamond Head Shoreline Fisheries Management Area has been closed to fishing every other year since the late 1980s. 

The Department of Land and Natural Resources says fishermen may use poles, throw nets and their hands to catch fish in the area. Spearfishing is allowed only during daylight hours.

Fishing still isn't allowed in the Waikiki Marine Life Conservation District, which is between the Natatorium and the Kapahulu sea wall.

Times have changed. Still can remember how my dad used to take me fishing on Waikiki beach in front of Duke's statue and the groin area. We would try to catch anything to eat. Parking was never a problem. That was over half a century ago!. Now I avoid Waikiki. Ah progress.
