Lā Holoholo Summer 2016

Posted by Keli'i Kotubetey on May 8, 2016


Check it out gang: 3 Lā Holoholo down and 6 more to go. The first 3 fishing days we had this spring were ~okay~ in terms of catching fish but we hope things pick up as we move into the summer months. This year, we decided to increase our predatory fish catching effort now that the makai portion of our pond wall is closed (Mahalo again for Pani ka Puka!). But now all the fish, especially predators, have slowly been getting bigger which is a problem when some of them have big sharp teeth. So come on our this summer with your ʻohana and help us eradicate predatory fish from the fishpond to make the living alittle easier for our plant-eating baby fish. Here’s the deets for our upcoming Lā Holoholo:

There are 9 Lā Holoholo this year – one in each month from March to November 2016. Sign ups will take place in 3-month increments. They will all be run the same, just in different months. We are asking for your consideration to sign up only one time per 3-month increment so we can “spread the fishing love” to as many families as possible.

Regarding the summer Lā Holoholo, here are the details:

  • Dates: Saturday June 18th, July 16th, and August 13th
  • Time: 8:30am to 2:30pm
  • Where: Heʻeia Fishpond
  • $10 per pole (you provide the pole, can bring more than one) *no nets or traps*
  • When: Registration begins PROMPTLY at 9am Monday May 16th
  • How: Follow the links below to register for a particular fishing day. Each day has a maximum and it will be filled on a first-come first-serve basis. If a day fills up and you still want to go, follow the instructions to be put on the wait list. If a spot opens up, it will be filled in the order of names on the wait list.


There is more information on the actual registration page. If you have any questions please email admin@paepaeoheeia.org or call our office at 236-6178. But it should be pretty simple. Remember, registration starts PROMPTLY AT 9:00AM MONDAY MAY 16TH. Just an FYI, our spring dates filled up in 30 minutes, so I’d get in early if I was you!

And no worries because we have more days coming up in the summer and fall. Plany time to go holoholo with family and friends. Mahalo nui for supporting Paepae o Heʻeia, Heʻeia Fishpond and our collective efforts to bring life back to this special place.
