    As long as it does not involve one person saying "common sense measures" I'll be sitting out there all day

    No, spearfishing.. in the water. I used to live on Oahu.
    You might be able to have a bangstick for when sharks might try to eat you though.

    I hate those things. thick as my thumb and as long as my forearm. We had power out last night and I went out to my generator and almost stepped on one barefoot. Smashed it with a 10 gallon fuel can and ripped it in half and it still was crawling toward me. I miss my VEPR 12. I would have unloaded a 12 round magazine into that thing if I had it.

    But how much of a man would I be if I speared a fish from the shore with a mall-ninja tactical spear?

    Not that you need another expensive hobby buuuut...

    Learn to fly fish. Bait becomes a non issue. A 9 foot long #8, 9, or 10 would be the ticket. Good saltwater reel. Learning to cast a fly should not be much more difficult than learning how to use a surf rod at this point. No thrill in fishing like battling a bruiser on a fly rod.

    bbbass and mkwerx have set you up...
    However, I recommend jetty fishing, or at least fishing somewhere near the mouth of a bay.
    Look for gravel bars and kelp fields in a bay. Also large rocks with current, large as in bigger than your house and current that gets your heart rate up (I never said it was safe, just good fishing).
    Rivers tend to wash a whole bafet into the estuaries which attracts too many species to list.
    My buddy caught a monkey face prickle back once... not even kidding.

    While on Oahu some 5-7 years ago on the Southwest shore we saw many bankies fishing off the rocks with lonnnggggg rods. Seems that we never really had time to stop & chat. Since we were Howlies we were probably smart to not stop & ask questions from the locals who hate tourists.....
    Less than 6 hours on the island I landed a 100+ blue marlin on a charter boat.....:)
