| | Apr 24 2017 - 12:05am | Comments

The Big-Fish List recognizes the biggest fish caught on rod and reel (except opakapaka and onaga, for which we’ll accept hand line catches) in West Hawaii waters for 2017 in each of 22 categories. Catches are listed by species, weight, angler, skipper, boat and date. The list is updated every Sunday throughout the year (copyright 2017 by Jim Rizzuto).

    For the final home game in a largely embarrassing season, the Mavericks could have shined a spotlight on Harrison Barnes, their surprise leading scorer who played in 79 games. Or they might have directed attention to Dirk Nowitzki, finishing his 19th season in Dallas and now the sixth NBA player to score 30,000 points.

    Luckily for the local soccer community, Akari Shimizu didn’t start surfing until later in her life.
