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!
Dave and his new wife Kristen from New York were recommended by friends and booked HighNoon for a half day adventure. David said he wanted to catch a marlin, but anything would do. We set out into the pacific in search of anything that would bite. 20 minutes into the trip we got a call from a friend that said he was on a little floater which had a few mahi mahi hanging around it. We headed in his direction and on our first pass we hooked a nice mahi. They wouldn’t eat lures after that so we switched to bait and managed to get a few more. Beautiful day, beautiful water, and beautiful couple. We wish them the best of luck and hope to see them again.
Here is a little video of catching one of the Mahi Mahi on live Bait.
Ross and Sally Slager along with another couple, Jeff and Paula Nichols from the Grand Rapids area of western Michigan chartered HighNoon for a 3/4 day fishing charter on August 30, 2013. .It was their last day in Hawaii and certainly the most memorable. They brought their ” A ” game to a wild Kona fishing charter experience.
We started trolling right out of the harbor over to a spot with some bait fish. We pulled out some light tackle dropped it down snagged a few, and tossed them in the live tubes. We then put out all the lures and trolled over to C buoy. On the way there we hooked up to a 300lb Blue. Ross jumped in the chair and got it to the back of the boat in about ten minutes. After releasing it we made our way over to the buoy, and dropped in a live bait in hopes of hooking a tuna. After dragging our little opelu around for about an hour with no takers. It was time to head back to the barn. In almost the same spot we hooked our first Blue something ate our long corner. Just when we were about to transfer the rod it came off. Then she came back and slammed down on the short bait. This time we had her hooked good. Sally jumped in the chair and started a battle of a life time. It was one of the most exciting fish we have ever had the privilege of landing. After about an hour of some excellent angling, strategic boat maneuvering, and help from the crew, Sally, a grandma of six landed a 630lb monster Blue Marlin. What an amazing day thanks to you all.
Here is a nice full video of all the action from beginning to end:
Here are a few incredible photos of Sally’s dramatic struggle with a huge pacific Blue Marlin. Photos taken by Jeff Nichols, thanks!
Mike and his buddy Mike wanted to take their sons Aiden and Grant deep sea fishing. Started out the morning looking for Ono, and about an hour in we hooked up. The kids jun ken poed Aiden won and landed his first Ono. Next up was grant and ten minutes later he was fighting a 10lb Barracuda. We then headed out into the deep where a 300lb marlin ate the long corner came out of the water six feet and threw the hook. We proceeded to a buoy to try find small tuna for the kids, but no one was home. All in all great day on the water and fish for the BBQ.
