|North Shore, Oahu
Louis Carreira of Kane'ohe was fishing on the North Shore of Oahu when he made his historic ulua capture. The fish had crashed a 2-lb nenue Louis used for bait. He battled the monster reef predator using a 13-foot IRW Slider pole, Newell 546 reel and 60-lb test Trilene line and needed every bit of skill and luck to land the fish in the heavy surf that was crashing the coast. He weighed his fish at Brian's Fishing Supply.
