Nearshore tagging training session on Oahu

Clay Tam, Tag It Program Coordinator, took Scott Haraguchi, Tag It Program Administrator, out for some tagging training.  Scott was using "rubbah hooks" on his Shimano Waxwing and had three (kaku) barracuda shake off.  Clay's go-to surface lure stuck an 11" (fork length) omilu and a 17" kaku and missed a larger papio and some kaku also.

Both fish were carefully tagged and released.
