Jay and Violet Strange catch massive mahi-mahi 

Jay and Violet Strange came to Big island to visit some friends.  They also decided to try their luck with High Noon Sport fishing.  They wanted something good to eat plus fight a tough fish..  They accomplished both!

We had some live bait in the live well left over from our early morning charter.  We had gone to one bouy that morning, but it was dead.   So, with the live bait still health, we decided to try another FAD bouy called F bouy.

When we arrived, there were a 5 boats trolling lures in the area with no luck. We dropped a live bait (called opelu) into the water and with a few minutes we had a double hook up to two massive mahi-mahi.  After an epic 20  minute battle on light tackle both fish were landed and the bull ended up weighing a whopping 44 lbs! Biggest mahi-mahi of the year in Kona.   Great job to our anglers Jay and Violet!   Here are two photos:

Ayche McClung from Hilo and her cousin from Dubai land nice Spearfish

Ayche McClung from Hilo had fished a few years ago on High Noon.  That day she landed a beautiful Blue Marlin right outside the harbor in the first 30 minutes.  Ayche had a cousin, Louay visiting from Dubai and want to take him fishing.   This time it took about an hour but the stinger came slamming down and Louay jumped in the fighting chair and did a good job of bringing this good eating short nose Spearfish to the boat.  This time, Ayche and Louay took some nice memories plus some great eating fish back to Kona.  Congrats!

 

Jonathan Allen from Kona lands nice Spearfish

Jonathan Allen chartered High Noon on Tuesday, January 26.  Jonathan wanted to take his Dad who is visiting from Corpus Cristi, Texas fishing during his visit to Kona.  They had two goals…one is get something good to eat and then try for a Bill Fish.  They accomplished both goals on a half day charter.

First, we stopped and caught 6 live baits called “opelu”.  We then went out to a bouy where we proceeded catch a nice Mahi Mahi for Jimmy who did a great job on light tackle bringing this great eating fish to the boat.  As we left the bouy with only one lure in the water, something big grabbed the lure and a beautiful Spearfish began jumping behind the boat.  This time Jonathan jumped into the fight chair and brought this beauty to the boat in about 10 minutes.  Congratulations to a father/son team catching on High Noon.

Here is Jimmy with his Mahi Mahi and Jonathan with his Spearfish:
