Randy and Jay are back for more!

Randy and Jay are from Oahu and fish with us 5 times s a year at least!   We spent a couple of hours trolling for ono with no bites. We started to fish some baits we caught in an area where we have been doing well.  We were greeted by 2 sailfish and a handful of tuna!!  All on light gear Randy and Jay  took turns landed fish!  We will be seeing them again shortly!  Another Epic day!

Day 1 of 2 with the Mcmann’s at Skinner Creek Lodge in BC

Doug and Julie McMann are back with us from British Columbia and they brought along their daughter Courtney, son Colton and his girlfriend Shannon. We have had previous luck with them so we were all excited to get out on the water again.

Already loaded with bait we took off to a bouy in hopes to finding some early morning mahi. When we arrived we fished our baits and had no bites so we left. As we left the bouy we took our first strike from a big spearfish!  Colton was up first and battled his spearfish to the boat. He did a great job keeping the line tight not letting the fish get away.

We spent the rest of the day looking for life with little luck.. Towards the end of our day we take our second strike!  Julie was up next and had a hard fight on her hands! It was another spearfish!  We told Doug to gaff the first fish which he did perfectly so we said for him to try again! He put another perfect shot in his wife’s beautiful fish!

Stay tuned for day 2 hopefully there is more to come!

Dave and Joylynn from Colorado find their fish

Dave and Joylynn Kohler from Colorado joined us for a full day of fun. The goal was to catch anything larger than any trout he has ever caught! We did just that!  On our way to catch bai,  we took two strikes from Ono….and  Dave was able to land each one of his Wahoo.   It was a very exciting way to start the day! We spent the rest of the day with no bites but had a great time just enjoying the day on the water! That’s the best attitude to have coming on a fishing trip! They enjoyed every second they were aboard! He was so proud of his catch he mounted his trophy ono weighing in around 30 lbs which also completed our goal of catching the largest fish he has ever brought in!!!

Wade Miller gets dinner!

Wade Miller and his wife from Idaho came to Hawaii to do a little hunting and fishing! They came with us on a 6 hr trip. Wade had gone hunting with Nahele Outfitters and was able to get a huge Billy Goat.  Today, Wade and was looking for some food to eat. Bait was again super hard but we managed to catch enough to do what we needed to do. It wasn’t long before the tunas were biting! They took turns as they landed 5 tuna and then we were out of bait.  Another good day out on the water
