Nate Corr and his wife along with Steve Meyer and Christine Cunningham all from the Kenai area of Alaska, chartered HighNoon for two days, March 31 and April 4. Sharing a house in the Captain Cook area of Kona, their first priority we getting something good to eat as they are in Kona for 7 days. Things looked a bit bleak as the day wore on…but suddenly the stinger rod went off and Christine got in the fighting chair. After a 15 minute struggle, Christine got the fish into the boat. A huge 45 lb. Bull Mahi Mahi….which means this great group from Alaska is grilling on the BBQ tonite. Here is the photo of the fish:
Jeff Hellman and his son, Elijah along with Jeff’s friend, Wes Brandt from Honolulu chartered HighNoon for a morning half day of fish. Beautiful day….very calm seas and a couple of nice fish they caught. Jeff wanted this trip to be about his son catching his biggest fish…and got rewarded about an hour into the charter when the short rigger came slamming down and Elijah got into the fighting chair. He did a great job of bring in this 30 lb. Wahoo. Here is Elijah with his biggest fish ever.
Later, Wes Brandt from Honolulu fought a nice Spearfish up to the boat where it was released. Congrats to all!
Myron Backhaus and his son, Grant (age 10) from San Francisco, California went on their first big game charter, today, March 29. Myron had reserved an afternoon charter because their was a very peak high tide late in the afternoon. He got rewarded about 3 pm when a nice Spearfish grabbed the long rigger baby blue lure….and Myron did an excellent job of getting the fish to the boat where we took a photo and then released it to fight another day.
His son, Grant looked with jealousy at his Dad….but a few minutes later we went inside and nabbed a very nice 30 lb. Wahoo on the long corner lure…and Grant jumped into the fighting chair and did a very good job of bringing it to the boat. Congrats to both Myron and Grant!
Here is the Spearfish release:
