Nearshore Fish Weight Angler Location Date
Titan Scorpion Fish (Nohu) 6 lbs 15 oz Karl Mikasa East Side Oahu 2/23/2020

Went speardiving with couple of friends east side of Oahu. I dove down outside the cave, checking out what's underneath with a speargun and saw something move a bit when my speargun got close & I knew it was a nohu. I had caught them before and remembered it was hassle to remove the fish from the shaft due to its poisonous spine and thick body. Since the fish doesn't really move around that much, went up and switched to kawabunga hybrid 3-prong and caught it. My friend said "whoa that's big one, gotta be a state record and check um." I had my doubts, later on we weighed it and checked HFN state record list & indeed it is! Had it officially weighed at Brians Fishing Supply. Heard lots of people saying that's no good eating fish, a junk kine. Yeah right. . . Karl
