Last night’s excitement was moonlight fishing on the coast at Mahukona. We went in search of Menpachi and were rewarded by little Cardinalfish treasures called Upapalu (meaning soft). Reaching about 6 inches in length, these nocturnal critters gather near the ocean surface on moonlit nights. Reeling one in feels a bit like dragging seaweed in on the line. Coated in a bit of flour, fried in olive oil and served with fresh lemon and wasabi mayonnaise, they make a delightful, if not small, mouthful!
