Yesterday we had seen some Mahi Mahi at one of our buoy’s but they wouldn’t bite our lures. So today our goal was to get see if we could get some on live bait. We headed out to a spot where we successfully caught some bait. Then we headed over to C buoy and out bait wasn’t in the water for more than a minute and we hooked a Mahi. After landing two more, we had more than enough for the grill, we set out trolling back towards the harbor. Not long after leaving the buoy we had a big bite from a Blue Marlin on our short bait. It took the line almost all the way down to the Dacron and unfortunately came off. All in all it was a great day on the calm waters of Kailua Kona.
