Joe Marchionoa and Sue Collins from Monterey, California booked High Noon for a six hour fishing trip. After getting them familiar with the gear, Sue was sitting in the chair asking questions when the stinger came down and a nice 450 lb. Blue Marlin came flying out of the water. Just as quick as it hit the the lure, it was off. Later we spotted a huge pod of Pilot Whales. Then just when we thought it was over, in the last twenty minutes, the stinger came crashing down and we were on this time. After a few jumps the Marlin went straight down and made Joe work for his fish. After a tough 40 minute battle we had this beautiful 350 lb Blue Marlin at the side of the boat for some pictures and a perfect release. Congratulations to Joe and Sue….great day with some great folks from California.
Jorge and Jenny Castaneda from the San Francisco Bay Area are visiting Hawaii celebrating their ten year anniversary. George wanted to go fishing and catch a big fish so they booked High Noon for a six hour trip. Not only did Jorge catch one beautiful Blue Marlin, he got two. We got some great pictures of the first one jumping all over the place and the second one we brought on the boat perfect size for the smoker. Congratulations to Jorge and Jenny for successful day on the water.
Lee and Valerie Reveles along with their son Evan booked High Noon for a four hour fishing trip. The day before we we missed two Marlin up north and caught a Mahi Mahi so we headed north. Not long into the trip Evan started to feel a little sick, but was not about to throw in the towel. Thankfully it all paid off when the short rigger came down, but it missed the hook. We waited for it to come back. With no signs of the fish we started turning around to make another pass. Just as we started to turn there he was, all lit up in hunt mode ready to strike. This time he got the hook was not coming off. Lee got in the fighting chair and started the battle of a lifetime. Awesome four hour trip, thanks Lee and Valorie and especially Evan for staying tough.
