Amanda and Matt two different trips both with success

Amanda Omo from Kanas came out with her friend for our first trip in the morning. We had 6 hrs together so we headed out in hopes of a good day. Early off on the morning we took our first strike which came from a very large skipjack about 30lbs! It was a tough fight for her but she made everybody happy catching dinner! We saw whales through the day and everyone had a great time.

On our second trip of the day we had Matt Bluett and his wife from Nebraska for 4 hrs in the afternoon. He’s a big time trophy hunter and was looking for a good day and maybe find something good. A couple of hours into the trip we took a very surprising strike from a 65 lb stripe marlin! Matt did a great job in the fighting chair staying tight in his angry fish. We were lucky enough to land the fish and Matt found another trophy for the wall!

Cory family from Montana gets a big spearfish

Ben Cory along with his wife and family of daughters came out for a 6 hr fishing trip. With a little later start,  we headed down south in search of some good waters in hopes of finding some fish. A couple of hours into the trip we watched a spearfish come up and eat the lure. Ben jumped in the fighting chair and had a big fight on his hands. The fish took out a big run and had a few good jumps. About half way threw the fight the fish took off on another big run which you don’t see to often with spearfish but he brought in after 10 min. Fish is estimated at 35-40 lbs which made it a great catch. He is also mounting his trophy spearfish and putting it on his cabin wall!

On our way back to the harbor, we took a massive from from a big blue marlin! Ben jumped in his chair and the fish stripped off 300 yards in a matter of a few seconds putting on huge jumps!! When we thought things were settling down is when the hooked popped free. All in all epic day.

Corey Scher from Montana gets her fish of a lifetime!

Corey Scher from Montana came fishing with her husband Brendan on a 6 hr fishing trip. The goal for the day was to try for some Mahi ….and just have fun. We started off heading to one of our bouys off town with some live bait to try for Mahi. As we approached the bouy from about a mile away, the short corner lure went screaming off.  It is the the closest line to the boat and the most exciting when it goes off.   Corey jumped in the chair to fight her fish! After a very very hard 35 minutes, Corey  was able to bring her fish along side the boat.  The fish is estimated at 650+ pounds and we were lucky enough to release a very healthy fish back to the water! We ran out of time from fighting the fish but that’s okay everybody was so happy and both Brendan and Corey never thought they would see a fish that big!!  Congratulations on a great day!

Geis family from Minnesota find some food fish

The Geis from Minnesota came fishing on a 4hr trip looking for some action. They were worried early in the morning worried about catching something but we said they were in good hands..

We knew where there was some fish. Before arriving to our spot to catch fish we were able to land a nice 16 lb Wahoo!  We then proceeded to drop some baits down to the bottom and were able to catch a 50 lb amberjack,  a barracuda, giant trevally, and a 12lb tuna!  We had a very successful morning and everybody was beyond happy and it was way more than they expected. They also took home fish to feed the whole family.
