|Long-eyed swimming crab (Podophthalmus vigil)
|Kaneohe Bay, Oahu
I headed out to my usual fishing spot in search of Oio. After casting out the poles and waiting for ten minutes, one of the poles got a nibble.
I brought it up to check the bait (ika) and found this Long-eyed Swimming Crab on the end of the line! It weighted in at 8.4oz.
After searching the state record list on the HAWAII FISHING NEWS website I noticed that there was no record weight listed for this species of crab... until now!
