Lee Brunner from Wisconsin came along with us on a half day for a chance at something big to catch. We were covering a ton of ground looking for some life at got lucky finding a very nice spearfish! Lee jumped in the chair and had a big fight on his hands! Lucky for Lee spearfish are an amazing fish to catch and good to eat
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!
Ayche McClung from Hilo had fished a few years ago on High Noon. That day she landed a beautiful Blue Marlin right outside the harbor in the first 30 minutes. Ayche had a cousin, Louay visiting from Dubai and want to take him fishing. This time it took about an hour but the stinger came slamming down and Louay jumped in the fighting chair and did a good job of bringing this good eating short nose Spearfish to the boat. This time, Ayche and Louay took some nice memories plus some great eating fish back to Kona. Congrats!
Jonathan Allen chartered High Noon on Tuesday, January 26. Jonathan wanted to take his Dad who is visiting from Corpus Cristi, Texas fishing during his visit to Kona. They had two goals…one is get something good to eat and then try for a Bill Fish. They accomplished both goals on a half day charter.
First, we stopped and caught 6 live baits called “opelu”. We then went out to a bouy where we proceeded catch a nice Mahi Mahi for Jimmy who did a great job on light tackle bringing this great eating fish to the boat. As we left the bouy with only one lure in the water, something big grabbed the lure and a beautiful Spearfish began jumping behind the boat. This time Jonathan jumped into the fight chair and brought this beauty to the boat in about 10 minutes. Congratulations to a father/son team catching on High Noon.
Here is Jimmy with his Mahi Mahi and Jonathan with his Spearfish:
