Kahoolawe open to fisherman this weekend

KAHOOLAWE (HawaiiNewsNow) - The normally restricted waters around Kahoolawe will open to fishermen this weekend.

The area is normally off-limits because of possible unexploded ordnance and to protect marine life.

But trolling is allowed twice a month in waters deeper than 30 fathoms.

All vessels must be registered with the Kahoolawe Island Reserve Commission.

And they must file a "catch report" whether they hook anything or not.
