It costs about 300 bucks if I remember correctly, they gave me about 15# of fish and we tried to eat it all over a weeks time but couldn’t.
Here’s the deal. I’ve been on about 5 of those “give us $125 and we won’t give a crap about you catching a fish” charters. Captain Fuzzy and first mate Sam do not F around!! Doubles, maybe even a triple, no time for grip and grin pictures...it’s fish on!! It was not a giggly trip at all, it was 100% no funny business fish catching!!

**At least it was when I went :)

How did they taste?
Havnt ate any that I caught. Just been goin to fish markets and what not. It did cross my mind tho.
Those blue spotted grouper (roi) are notorious for carrying ciguatera toxin, which will make you very sick.  I was told by some natives on Maui that the red and silver near shore fish are safe to eat, don't know if that's true or they were just having fun with a haole. 
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Impacts: After the introduction in the 1950s, C. argus has flourished in Hawaii.  This species is not seen as a major threat to Hawaiian ecosystems; however, it is known to cause ciguatera poisoning, a common food poisoning caused by eating fish that contain ciguatoxin.  It is treatable in humans, but the concern is that ciguatoxin can move up the food chain via bioamplification and spread to other species.

The toxin is usually not an issue in fish under 5#.  It is a bio accumulation thing from algae that little critters consume and then the big critters eat them and store the toxin, mostly in fat tissue.  If it is big and old, yikes!!

I am told the roi is not safe at any size, introduced species, causing havoc on the reef.

The needle fish was honestly the best fight so far. It fought harder than a 12 lb chrome steelhead. Never seen line fly off the spool so quick. Jumped outta the water prob 5 times. Way cool. I been mainly tryin to target them since but have not been able to find anymore.

Fish around the rocks for the long skinny ones, two or three kinds.  Wait 'til a oi'o (bonefish) happens by, going to be a rush

Indeed, and perfectly shaped for fish tacos.
