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].
