Wayne and Yvonne Philips land great eating Wahoo in Kona, Hawaii

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~

Mike from Oahu landed nice spearfish last week.  He was in Kona for a wedding with some friends and chartered HighNoon for a group of his friends.  They also wanted something good tot eat and got both when this nice Spearfish hit the long rigger.  Here is a photo of the fish:

 

 

 

 

Father and son team catch Marlin and Tuna

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 catches Mahi Mahi

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.

Pat catches a spearfish and an Ono

Yesterday, Pat and his wife from Oregon booked HighNoon for a full day charter. It was a nice day on the water without a bite until the last hour of the trip. We hooked an Ono out in the deep. After the fish was on the boat we quickly got the lures back in the water and continued back to the harbor. No more than twenty minutes later we were on again, this time it was a Shortnose Spearfish. We had that fish in the boat in minutes. Pat and his wife will be eating well to night. Beautiful day on the water and in three months Pat will have his fish on the wall at home. Thanks and hope to see you two again.
