John and Vanessa from California are on vacation for John’s birthday. John loves fishing and was really excited to fish for the first time in Hawaii. He had never caught an Ono (wahoo) before so we started of trolling for just that. On our first pass around the point we hooked a beautiful Ono. John was so excited he forgot what to do. eventually we successfully had a twenty pound Ono gaffed and in the fish bag. We then set out for the buoy. There was decent size Tunas there the day before so we had out fingers crossed. Every pass by the buoy we had a fish on. After some fun there we headed back to the harbor and along the way we found a very large Big Eye Tuna being pulled around by a shark. You never know what you are going to see out there. Thanks John and Vanessa we hope to see you again.
Here are some amazing pictures of a whale breaching just of the bow of the boat. Thanks Howard for the pics.
The Naugle Family is visiting Hawaii from California. Justin, Trevor, Ryan with their dad and grandpa booked High Noon for a half day fishing trip, because Ryan wanted to catch a fish while in Hawaii. Only an hour into the trip the long rigger came out of the rigger and Ryan was already in the chair waiting. After some great teem work we boated a beautiful Ono, perfect for the grill. We didn’t catch anything else the rest of the three hours, but it sure was awesome to get Ryan his fish. Thanks Naugle family for a fun trip. Trevor hope you have fun at end of the world and south point.
Travis and his father-in-law Mike from Eureka, California booked High Noon for a half day trip. We set out in search for something for the grill. Almost half way into the trip we hooked a nice Ono (Wahoo) on the stinger. After a slight confusion of who was to reel in the fish, Mike got in the chair and started reeling. The fish took quite a bit of line so after a minute or so of reeling we had dinner in the boat. Travis decided to extend the trip to a three quarter giving us more time to switch it up. We tried it all, we trolled to a buy tried a few things there with no one home. Then hit some of our favorite spots on the way back to the harbor. The water was amazingly calm and peaceful and we did get to see some whales while trolling around. Thanks guys for the great trip, enjoy the fish and hope to see you again.
Dustin and Karen Overturf from Chugiak, Alaska joined us for a three quarter day of fishing. With our expectations low and our hopes high we set out. About an hour into the trip we hooked something on the long rigger. We had no idea what it was until it was at leader, a awesome twenty pound Skipjack Tuna locally known as an Otaru. Karen handled the rod like a champ and we boated the fish and tossed it on ice. We quickly put the lines back out and continued trolling. After almost two hours of no action the stinger flies out of the rigger, but nothing happened. The fish then hit the long rigger and again didn’t stick. Then third time was a charm, we were on. Karen jumped in the chair and reeled in a huge Shortnose Spearfish in no time. What an awesome trip when we weren’t catching we had plenty to talk about being that we are all hunters sharing some of our most memorable stories. Whether its in Alaska or here again we can’t wait to see you again and make some new hunting stories, definitely made some life long friends today thanks so much Dustin and Karen.
