Just wanted to share a fishing tournament coordinated by Boogie-D of Coastal Kayak Tours. It's called the Paddler's Papio Open which will be held on August 7th at the Haleiwa Canoe Club in Oahu next to the Rainbow Bridge. If you are not familiar with this fishing tournament, here's what it is all about! The Paddler’s Papio Open is a Papio Fishing Tournament open to all paddlers. In this event, surfboards, stand up surfboards, paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, OC1-4, and dory’s may be used for fishing.  As long as anglers fish from a human powered watercraft it will be allowed for use in this papio fishing tournament.
