Brian and his wife are from Utah and came fishing with us for a 6 hr trip. They are a team together. They hunt and fish around the world and wanted to catch some mahi and tuna in Kona.
In areas around the world that are known for these fish, they did not catch any of the these species. Today we had to brave some unfortunate high seas and wind in order to target mahi and tuna but they have been around the world for these fish, so we took on the challenge. And we got lucky! They took turns fighting a nice mahi and few tuna in the 12-25 lbs range. Once we caught our limit we headed for the harbor. We had a great day!
We have pictures from today to post but unfortunately my phone fell into the ocean which caused me to loose all my notes and pictures from the last 4 days! I am very sorry to the people who follow this blog and then fish with us.
This week was filled with great catches from tagging Spearfish to lots of Mahi ranging 10-46lbs! The 46 lb mahi was a giant bull mahi caught by our good friend Mike from Nebraska and his friend Mike who has fished us before. Mike mounted his trophy Mahi for everybody to see!
We have also been seeing good tunas in a wide range of sizes. Everyday we have to work very hard to get our bites they don’t come easy but at the end of the day it seems to be successful. Everyday is different but all you can do is try! We had Ken from Michigan tag a 40 lb spearfish and a few tunas!
Again very sorry to very everybody again about the phone going in the water and losing some great photos of their catches!
