The purpose of Lokahi Fishing is to make fishing more fun while making a difference in our fisheries by connecting fishermen to fishermen and fishermen to fish! The Lokahi App is here to support Hawaii’s Fishing community created by Fishermen for Fishermen. Download the Lokahi App today and do your part in helping to collect important fishery data. The data collected will help scientists make better management decisions to sustain our resources for generations.
The Lokahi App has many features such as being able to create your own private database in the cloud, allow you to connect with friends or groups of friends of your choice. See what others might be catching, find out the latest wind, tide, and moon information. Get the latest tournament results or perhaps click on informative “How to” fishing videos and much more. Stay in touch with others “Connecting Fishermen to Fishermen and Fishermen to Fish”.
All Hawaii fishermen are eligible to participate in the Lokahi Virtual App Tournament (VAT). “No Entry Fee”. Just download and use the Lokahi App to enter your fish. Categories will be: Jacks (Ulua/Papio), Oio and other or mystery species category. At the end of each month there will be a random weight drawn for each fish category Jacks(Ulua/Papio), Oio, a mystery species and a random effort in hours for the “Nice Try Award” or white wash category. Monthly winners will be notified by a Lokahi VAT committee member and posted on the Lokahi Tournament button. The more fish you catch and enter the better your chances are of winning a monthly prize and a LOKAHI Virtual App Tournament Winner Certificate with your full name and a picture of your species of fish hand drawn by renowned marine artist Les Hata. In addition, there will be random Annual Grand Prizes drawn at the end of the year so even if you don’t win a monthly prize you are still eligible to win the Grand Prize for submitting your catch; commenting or liking a post. A fun tournament where anyone can be a winner!
All ties will be decided by the Lokahi VAT committee.
