One big eel. 1931.

CAUGHT WAS A FORTY-TWO INCH LONG EEL

While Jordan A. Silva and Medeiro were fishing at the surf break behind the Elks Club building in Waikiki, Silva caught a 42 inch long eel, that is three feet and six inches long. This eel was huge, and it was worth going fishing. It was this Monday when he caught the eel, that being Labor Day [la o na limahana].

  1. was able to share this with a Vanderbilt University (Nashville) researcher who’s working on eels; he assured me he’s still working on the critters ’cause “part of me likes an excuse to bring scary animals into the university.” I replied the Dean might define ‘scary animal’ differently, but thanks to Neupepa for making this info available for research !
