Trolling dates set for Kahoolawe waters
Trolling will be permitted Oct. 12, 13, 26 and 27 in the waters off Kahoolawe, the Kaho'olawe Island Reserve Commission announced.
All vessels must register annually with KIRC before entering the reserve to troll during designated trolling dates. Registered vessels are required to file a catch report with KIRC any time they fish in the reserve, whether fish are caught or not.
A $25 permitting fee will be applied to the registration process.
Access to the Kaho'olawe Island Reserve waters is highly restricted because of the continued presence of unexploded ordnance and for the protection of marine resources. Reserve waters are within two nautical miles of Kahoolawe. All other fishing, ocean recreation, commercial and/or any other activities are strictly prohibited.
To register with the KIRC or for more information, contact Dean Tokishi at 243-5889 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to kahoolawe.hawaii.gov to download a registration packet. Registration packets also are available at the Division of Boating and Recreation at 101 Maalaea Boat Harbor Road.
