Kalaheo Elementary School Fishing Club

September 7, 2012

The Kalaheo Elementary School Fishing Club on Kauai has increased its membership. Teacher Joel Kawate now has his entire 4th grade homeroom class plus some 5th graders in the club. They meet for an hour every Friday and the studious ones who have done all their homework, stayed out of trouble, and obtained parental permission to get to go fishing after school for a few hours (using barbless hooks of course). This year a white papio was caught and released by the boys while they learned to target the delicious but elusive moi. For the kids, the fishing experience and knowledge gained from Mr. Kawate is priceless. You guys are very lucky to have a teacher like that. Congratulations on your barbless papio!
