We were lucky enough to have meet Doug and Julie McMann who live in British Columbia. Our good friend from Mike from Nahele Outfitters introduced us. They came for a wild boar hunt with Mike and were very successful in getting a very large boar!
They were sent our way to go fishing in hopes of finding “big game” fish! Doug and Julie own and operate a hunting guide business, Skinner Creek Hunts, back home, so we knew right off the bat we were gonna have fun together.
Doug and Julie came fishing with us on Thursday for the first time and we were able to boat a very nice Ono! In the afternoon we had a lot of action but had a hard time getting the hook in the right spot. We took triple striped marlin strikes and missed a spearfish all of which we did not land. None the less everybody had a good time.
Not to long after getting off the boat we get a call from Julie saying they had a great time and wanted to go back with us on Saturday! So without hesitation we said yes!
Today brought whole new set of adventure. We fished in the porpoise school all morning trying to catch a tuna without any luck. But that’s fine because we were waiting for the afternoon bite to turn on and set back up in position for action in our spot. Sure enough there was fish home for us today! Doug landed a very large spearfish weighing in at 35 lbs and also releasing another spearfish not to long after that! But that’s not it we were able to accomplish the main goal by landing a “big game” fish! Doug fought a 225 lbs Blue marlin! The fish was in excellent condition so it made for a great release!
We here at High Noon charters feel great in being able of catching a fish of a lifetime for Doug and Julie. Congratulations on a great catch!
