Tommy and Marla Hunt from Morgantown, West Virginia reserved HighNoon for their first day in Kona. Tommy really wanted a Blue Marlin but also wanted his new bride to catch a nice fish also. And they wanted to snorkel in the warm waters of Captain Cook. Any one of the three would have been a good day.
After leaving harbor, we tried for some smaller fish, no luck. Then we went outside and trolled for Blue Marlin down to Captain Cooks where Tommy and Marla snorkeled a bit. On the way back we went back outside and the stinger game slamming down. The marlin put on quite a white water show before going deep. Tom did a great job of getting this fish to the boat in about 30 minutes. Could not get the hook out, so we decided to take the fish. After boating the Blue Marlin, Tom said he could not possibly fight another fish that large, so we went back inside try and catch Marla a fish. A double Wahoo strike and Marla got in the fighting chair. The first fish got away when I grabbed leader, but Marla was determined and she landed the second fish. Blue Marlin, Wahoo and and snorkeling adventure !
Keith and Renee Ferguson and their family group got a big surprise on Memorial Day. Keith had reserved HighNoon for a family fishing trip and wanted the two teen girls to catch fish. Keith and Renee and their daughter Eric, son Gregory and his girlfriend Katy all boarded HighNoon with high hopes
I assured him the fishing had been excellent all week long for Wahoo….and that we had a 95% probability of catching the girls a nice Wahoo. After 4.5 hours into the charter with no strikes, I was getting very apprehensive about fulfilling his desire to have the girls catch their first fish. Suddenly a great double strike and Katy was first into the chair and she did a great job of landing her first fish ever, a 40 lb, Mahi Mahi.
The other fish was still on and Erica now climbed into the fighting chair and landed another huge Mahi Mahi of 45 lbs.
Great family and a memorable Memorial Day for the entire family! Here are the two fish:
Rob and Kelly Nawrocki from Michigan reserved a half day charter on HighNoon back in January. Rob’s only goal was to have his wife Kelly catch a nice big game fish while in Hawaii. About 90 minutes into the charter, three lines came down simultaneously. The first two came off…but Kelly did a great job fighting the fish and she landed this nice Wahoo below: A Memorial day weekend to remember:
Jim and his buddy booked High Noon for a full day today in search of an elusive pelagic fish. We caught some live bait in the morning in hope of catching some tuna that have been hanging out with the porpoise. With no luck finding the porpoise we found luck in the deep when a super random Ono bit our long rigger lure. With a little pressure off when started trolling again and not long after we scored again when a nice size spearfish hit our shortrigger. Not a bad day in kona. Great guys we hope to see again
Darin and wife Candy Geringer from Glendo, WY booked High Noon for two full days. Day one started slow with one Wahoo. Day two had much more action. They tagged and released a 40lb Spearfish. We then proceeded to the buoy where they caught more tuna than they could handle. We let numerous fish go but kept a few nice ones for the BBQ. Great day and ask for nicer water. Hope to see you guys again.
