Puleileho ke kai o Kāʻelo
A rough sea in the month of January
January is known for heavy surf, which means that limu (seaweed) often washes ashore. This attracts fish and is a great time to collect seaweed and fish.
o Kāʻelo ka malama, pulu ke aho a ka lawaiʻa
January is the month when the fisherman’s lines are wet
January is a good time for deep-sea fishing, bottom-fish fishing like ʻōpakapaka (Pink Snapper), and shore-fish fishing such as ʻōʻio (Bonefish) and ‘ulua (Giant Trevally). In January, the Orion constellation is now visible in the eastern evening sky.
