When I was a kid, everybody knew that if you were going fishing, you should never vocalize the fact. If somebody asked you, “Whea you going?” (Where are you going?), the proper answer would be “holoholo” (just wandering around) or something similar.
The Hawaiians believed that the fish have hearing abilities and that that saying something like, “I’m going fishing” would alert them and make them wary. So the folks of my day and age and earlier would automatically interpret an answer of something like “I going holoholo” to mean the person was going fishing.
