3rd Annual Oahu Transit Services

October 21, 2012

The 3rd Annual OTS Family Fishing Tournament was a big success with lots of ono food and live local musical entertainment. The small family style fishing tournament for the OTS family and friends turned out to be mainly a kids fishing event as they totally outfished the adults. The results were not surprising as many of the OTS employees were first-time or novice anglers themselves and signed up mainly for their kids. The kids also got rewarded as the organizers made sure each one who attended the weigh-in took something home regardless of catching any fish. Forty-one percent of the total anglers signed up for the barbless challenge. The only barbless catches were made by 2 future fish- ermen in the kids category. Kai Murata (0.95lb white papio) and Dillon Wakui (2.05 lb. oio) brought their barbless catches to the scale early during the weigh-in period. I guess they were just setting the example for the adults to follow.
