Our first story comes from May 14th when we took our friend and longtime customer Brian Whitley from South Carolina out for the second day of his 2 day trip where we were lucky enough to catch him the biggest Ahi (Hawaiian for yellowfin tuna) of his life and also my personal best of 204lbs.
It was a long battle of 40 minutes. Brian did a great job and brought the fish to the boat in great condition. looking forward to seeing you again in the near future Brian! Tight lines and ALOHA!!!
May 30th Memorial day. We took some great folks from Detroit and Wisconsin out for a half day. The weather was amazing, the water was Kona flat, and the fish were biting!!! We managed to get them a very nice spearfish of about 45lbs. Now usually we release all billfish – but this time our guest wanted some table fare so we decided to keep this one. Spearfish are a part of the Billfish family but are also the best eating of the family as well. A little later in the day we had a Marlin bite but it fell off the hook shortly after it had bit, oh well that’s fishing. Just as we were about to bring in the lines a feisty Mahi Mahi grabbed our long rigger and was brought to the boat in minutes to end another great Kona day!
Tight lines and ALOHA!!!
