Steve’s wife Alexis had to come to Hawaii for work so they decided to make a trip out of it. While here they wanted to do some fishing, they booked High Noon for a full day fishing/snorkeling trip. Just as we were leaving the harbor the long corner came crashing down and we had a nice 200lb Blue Marlin jumping at the back of the boat. After taking some line it came off. What a way to start the morning. We made it down a little more south and we hooked a beautiful 250lb Blue Marlin on the stinger. Steve jumped in the chair and muscled it to the boat like a champ. After some awesome pictures we released it to swim another day. Then we headed into captain cook for some spectacular snorkeling. Great day in the water thanks again Steve and Alexis.
Wayne and Yvonne Philips from Cave Creek, Arizona chartered HighNoon with two goals in mind. Most importantly, they wanted some great eating fish….and second, Wayne wanted to catch a Blue Marlin. Well, Yvonne accomplished the first goal just minutes out of the harbor when this beautiful 25 lb Wahoo nailed the stinger lure. Yvonne got bragging rights for their fishing charter when she did a great job of bring this great eating fish along side HighNoon and into the cooler it went. Here is a nice photo of their adventure. And you couldn’t meet two nicer people than Wayne and Yvonne. Hope to see you again soon and we hope you and your family some enjoy eating some great tasting Ono this week~
Avid outdoorsman Eddie and his son Luke from Georgia booked HighNoon for a full day charter in hopes of finding something big. Both Eddie and his son spend a lot of the time in the woods hunting big game and wanted to test their luck in the beautiful waters off kona. We left the harbor at 5:30am and it was game time. We set our lure and headed to one of our productive areas when our stinger rod starts screaming. A nice 200lb blue marlin goes aerial and the fight was on. Luke is a natural angler and had the fish to the boat in under 10 minutes. Just as crewman Andrew grabbed the leader, hook came out and fish swam free, high fives all around. We set back up and headed to another good zone where we had seen some tunas in the area. We worked it for a while when bingo, tunas explodes and the long rigger. Luke is back at it again, quick work from an awesome fisherman, he had the tuna in the deck in about 7min. All around good day with great people. That tuna mount is going to look great on you wall!
Bjorne and his wife Malin from Switzerland are vacationing in Hawaii for their honeymoon. While here they decided to go fishing with us on the HighNoon for a full day trip. The day started off slow, but at about 11:30 we had a nice Blue Marlin eat out long corner bait. After taking a bunch of line and some crazy jumps it threw the hook. About an hour later we missed a Shortnose Spearfish on the long rigger. Then just before getting back to the harbor we hooked a Mahi Mahi on the long rigger, and it stuck. Bjorne did an awesome job reeling the fish to the boat. Great job Bjorne and Molin congratulations and best wishes from the HighNoon teem.
