Devin Philips lives in Oahu and came over on a 4 hr trip to try his luck. We started the day off my loosing a Blue Marlin!.. it was a tough break but not much you could do.. As we are running out of time we were heading into the harbor we got lucky enough to catch a mahi-mahi for dinner!!!

Dorado Kona Fishing

Fish starting to show up for the holidays 

Logan Finn from Pennsylvania came aboard with his Mom and Dad on a 6 hr fishing trip.

Already having bait ready leftover from the day before we starting to head off shore. Hearing about a decent bite the day before we were eager to get lines out there!

We manged to raise 3 spearfish and a blue marlin for the whole day! We saw a lot of life but manged to get one to the boat! At only 15 years of age Logan caught his first 30 lb spearfish! And to top it all off he did it on very light tackle which not very many people get to do! His fish was able to feed the family of 8 very happily!

Kona Spearfish

Getting lucky

Daniel Waite David Nuggent came fishing on a full day excursion. We spent most of the morning looking for a Marlin bite or to find the school of dolphin to fish for tuna… Unsuccessful at finding either of them I was forced to try drop some baits to the bottom.

Lucky enough we caught a large snapper for dinner and caught a few Ulua in the 35 pound range! Made the day for everyone!

Spearfish!

Davidson Brookes lives here in Kona and came out with us on a 4hr trip. Fishing has still been slow for billfish but we managed to pull out a massive spearfish while trolling today! Everybody is super happy and a ton of fish to take home!

Kona Sport Fishing

Nice morning action on live bait!

Jane Doe, Troy Schott,  Scott Carcary, and Kara Demiro from Montana and Arizona came out with us on a full day of fun! I explained to them in the morning that fishing has been very tough for the fleet but I assured them to hang on and be patient.  That I have a few tricks up my sleeve.

Thankfully the bait was cooperating with us on the and we caught some nice opelu (small makerel) to us as live bait.   We put these in our live well and went to a part of the island we hardly ever fish because that was the only place that had good current!

We caught some great bottom fish for everybody which made it a very exciting day! Everybody was able to fight some fish and have a blast doing it!
