Today we took Donnelle Clark from Oregon out big game fishing. Donnelle was very excited to fish and her dream was to catch a Blue Marlin. Fishing has been very slow this week, but as I told Donnelle, if you aren’t fishing, you definitely aren’t going to catch!
Since fishing had been slow south of the harbor, I turned north today and went to what they call the “backside of the grounds” . About halfway into the charter, the short rigger came slamming down….but no fish. Captain Tara began teasing the fish and it attacked the lure about 4 times….and it finally hooked up. Donnelle jumped into the fighting chair, and did a great job of getting this nice 175 lb Blue Marlin to the boat after about a 15 minute battle. Capt Tara grabbed leader and the the fish went crazy jumping all around the back of the boat. We pulled it closer, and released it to fight another day. Congratulations to Donnelle on a great catch! Here is Captain Tara on leader just before release:
As fall unfolds the weather and fishing conditions here in Kona continue to fire up!
This past week both Blue Marlin and Mahi Mahi have shown up in good numbers.
The number of visitors has slowed down a bit last week but we are already almost completely booked for the end of October! The currents have been holding steady and the water has cooled down bit making for Ideal fishing conditions! Most boats are averaging 2-3 bites a day!
We have been doing a lot f live baiting on our 3/4 and full day charters and catching mahi’s on lighter tackle then going out to fish for marlin on heavier gear during the tide change!
Be sure to contact us if you’d like your shot at catching a fish!
The Mahi Mahi and Ono are starting to show up. Overall, the fishing in Kona during late September is for Blue Marlin, Mahi, Ono and Ahi Tuna.
High Noon has been busy the last few weeks as Mahi Mahi and Wahoo have started to come into the waters off Kona, Hawaii. We been fortunate to have had some amazing fun clients making the days out on the water a blast.
We are quickly getting into our live bait season and have had a few nice ahi show up as well.
For your chance to come out with us be sure to contact us
Another great day on board High Noon Fishing Charters
We were honoured to be apart of Justin and Megans first blue marlin and deep sea fishing experience! They were visiting us all the way from Alberta Canada doing a 4 hr charter when we hooked up to a 150lb marlin! Justin did an amazing job bringing this fish to the boat! We look forward to fishing with them again!
September is still firing and we have a few spots left towards the end of the month…
With flights coming in daily and accommodation in low season now is the time to come fish with us!
