Evan and Michele Riffee chartered High Noon for a mid morning charter yesterday. He had wanted to go early morning, but we were already booked. However I told Evan that the bite had been later in the day for weeks. So, he agreed to the later charter. In retrospect, it worked out perfectly as about about midway through the charter, our short corner lure (a Joe Yee Super Plunger) went off and line began screaming off the reel. The fish came out of the water and ran through our entire spread. After a tough fight, this 225 lb fish came leaping out of the water 100 yard from the boat.
Evan did a great job of bringing this trophy fish along side the boat where it was released to fight another day. Congratulations to Evan and we hope to see you on High Noon again in the future.
Here are a few photos at the release:
Suzy Q booked a 3/4 day with High Noon Sport fishing. After 4 hours with no bites the stinger came down and we were hooked up to a spearfish. While clearing lines a blue marlin hit the long corner 30ft from the transom of the boat and we were hooked up to a second bill fish! After a epic battle both fish were landed. Our victory photo session was short lived because another blue marlin ate the stinger and once again we were in for a battle. The fish was landed and another epic day goes in the books for the High Noon.
Sometimes you work really hard to get a fish to bite and sometimes they don’t bite at all. This wasn’t one of those days. Ten minutes into our trip, just as we finished our morning run down line started peeling off the long rigger and a blue marlin put on a show for us giving us multiple jumps. After a 20min battle the fish was tagged and released. Once again the High Noon gets the job done.
Edwin from Washington State was in Hawaii with his family. His express purpose was to catch a nice fish for some great dinners while they were in Hawaii. We started out going for Wahoo (called Ono in Hawaii)…..and about 20 minutes into the trip landed this nice Wahoo. Have some great dinners Ed!
Eric Cudmore and Valerie Armstrong from Boston, Ma fished on High Noon this week. We trolled for a bit with no action. The bite this entire month seems to have been later in the day and this was our second half day charter that day…and the afternoon bite continued. About 11 am the stinger lure came flying down and Eric had a fun time bringing in a nice 30 lb yellowfin tuna. Here is ahi tuna:
Then we had another few hits but no hook up. As we turned for home, the stinger lure came down again and this time they got their billfish. A nice Spearfish…..a beautiful and great eating billfish. Congratulations to Eric and Val and we hope to see you both again on High Noon!
