Mahi Mahi for Allan

Allan and his wife Leslie Reed from Iowa booked High Noon for a three quarter fishing trip. The fishing has been a little slow lately, but luckily we have managed to find a few Mahi Mahi’s. Today we headed out to a buoy to see if anybody was home. On our first pass something knocks down the long corner, but doesn’t stick. Soon after the long rigger comes down and line starts peeling off the reel. With a nice Mahi Mahi jumping behind the boat Leslie climbs into the chair, straps into the rod, and begins her battle. The fish was about fifteen yards out and lucky for him comes unhooked. We quickly set back up and made another pass. This time the short rigger was hit and Allan took his turn in the chair. Within minutes the fish was in the boat. Another successful fishing trip thanks Allan and Leslie we look forward to seeing you again.

Don catches nice Mahi Mahi

Don and Kevin from Australia are visiting the islands with their wife’s. Staying three nights on Maui, three nights on the Big Island, and then three nights on Oahu. While the ladies stayed on land to do some shopping and exploring the guys booked a charter with us on High Noon for a full day of fishing. It was a long tough day but we managed to hook up to a beautiful Mahi Mahi. Don jumped in the chair and reeled it in perfectly. Thanks guys for the great time and positive attitude. We look forward to seeing you guys next time hopefully during our summer time and we can get you that big Blue Marlin.

Two nice Mahi Mahi’s for three cool dudes.

Joe, Paul and Rob from the east coast are here with a group of over seven hundred for an engineering convention. With some of their free time here on the island they decided to do some deep sea fishing. We headed out to a buoy to see if anybody was home. We noticed a bunch a bait fish jumping on the surface so we pulled out some light tackle caught a few, rigged one up and dragged it around the buoy. We didn’t think have any takers so we set back up and continued trolling around. Just as it was nearing the end of our trip the long corner came down and started taking line. Just as we transferred the rod it came off. After a few more misses we finally hooked a nice Mahi Mahi. We realized there was a big net in the water so we worked it a while keeping the charter out a little longer than planned, but they didn’t mind. We managed to land one more to finish off the day. Another successful trip on the High Noon.

Joseph and Wanda both catch Mahimahi

Joseph and his wife Wanda were in Hawaii on the NCL cruise ship “Pride of America” they figured they would try the famous Kona waters in search of a big blue marlin. With our marlin season slowing we still decided to go for it. Anything can happen in Kona at anytime. We had a few mystery bites first thing in the morning but we never got to see the fish, only hear the line screaming. After they both came off we figured the third time was a charm. Like always, nearing the end of our trip both the long rigger and stinger come down and we were on. Joseph in the chair and Wanda from the rod holder. Both did a wonderful job in angling the fish to the boat. Great job guys. Hope to see you guys again in the future.
