We took out Robert Kimmel from Houston, Texas fishing on a six hour trip. Robert mentioned that he had been disappointed many times before and catching most anything would be a great day. He has traveled the world to fish, so he was just looking for anything to bite. We started off by catching live bait in the morning. We thought that there were some smaller tuna and Mahi Mahi at the bouys which would be a great catch for Robert and his wife. No luck! Nothing at the bouys. The trolling bite has been pretty good, so we put out the lures. As time was winding down he was beginning to think we didn’t have a chance. I told him not to worry we haven’t reached my favorite spot!.
Sure enough, Bang!… The long corner lure suddenly goes off and line begins screaming off the reel. We are hooked to a huge 400 lb Blue marlin! He had an epic battle! The marlin jumps insanely next to the boat on leader putting on a great show and was released to fight another day. What a way to end the day. His first big game fish was a 400 lb blue marlin, a once in a lifetime catch. Robert is going to put his trophy on his wall! Congratulations on a great day! Here is Robert’s Blue Marlin rocketing by the boat:
We took out our return clients who have become good friends. John Ogle and his wife, Brandy fished with us last week and we caught a beautiful blue marlin. We have been in close contact while they have been here and we managed to fit them in on another 4 hr trip on the afternoon. John wanted to take a friend out Robert Reyes for a day of fishing. After hearing about our previous fish Robert was eager to get out!
About a half hour into to charter, we had a double Blue Marlin bite but it came off. A few minutes later, we had a huge Blue Marlin hit the long corner lure. It missed but then came at the short corner lure and missed again. We dropped back the lure just a bit and teased it back up where it inhaled the lure and line began screaming off the reel. Robert Reyes jumped in to the fighting charter. This awesome Blue put on a blistering array of awesome jumps. After a back breaking 45 min battle Robert was able the boat a 552 lb Blue Marlin!!! Everybody was beyond words on the boat. It was truly and amazing day with amazing friends!
Bonnie Jones from Eureka California came out fishing with her hubs and looking for a fun time fishing. In the morning we fought a 400 lb blue for only a few short minutes before it jumped off the line.. We were making our way back to the harbor when a 350 lb blue marlin jumped on the line again! This time Bonjie was able to defeat the beast and got it to the boat to put a tag in! Great day in Kona!
Yesterday we took out our long time return client out fishing to catch some food for the table! My good friend Tandy from Oahu caught a nice size tuna and Mahi! The whole family was excited for a big fish dinner!
We had a group of boys out today looking to have a little fun fishing. To start the morning off Mike Wandlimg from Chicago boated a 30 lb Ono! We began to drag live tunas around for bait to try hook something bigger. And sure enough Brad Denice from Nashville Tennessee boated a 150 lb blue marlin! Great day for the boys now it’s off to the scales! And we ended up catching an even bigger Ono on the way home!
