Dewayne McGuire from west Texas came fishing with us and his family for a 6 hr trip. They were on a cruise ship that did a one day stop over in Kona. Dwayne was excited to see what the fishing in Kona was all about. Right out of the gates we were seeing a lot of life in the water. We could see tuna jumping and birds working. We worked that area waiting for a tide change….and right at the tide change, we took a massive strike for a huge Ahi…giant yellowfin tuna.
Dwayne jumped in the chair to fight his fish and did a great job boating his fish. We boated the Ahi and estimated weight at 100 lbs! What an awesome day! Dwayne will have a lot to talk about with his fellow cruise ship people. Congratulations on a great catch!
