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!
Alan and his wife Gina from Connecticut booked HighNoon for full day in search for Ono and Mahi. We started out the first half of the trip for Ono. We went one for five. After the tide change we went out to the deep to see if we might be able to run something over. Just our luck, we hooked up to a nice Mahi Mahi. Great day on the water thanks Alan and Gina.
We had a group of five from the NCL cruise ship join us on the HighNoon today for a four hour adventure. About half way through the charter something huge slammed the short corner bait. Dennis Schmidt from Round Rock, Texas got in the fighting chair. After a nice twenty minute fight we had a 300 b Blue Marlin on the side of the boat. Great job Dennis.
Sybil and Brian from California decided to go fishing while they visited Hawaii. They looked around for a boat and decided to go with HighNoon for a half day fishing adventure. First thing Sybil said when she stepped on the boat was “I want to catch a marlin”. We told her that was sort of our specialty and that we were going to do everything we could to get her that fish. 20 minutes out of the harbor out stinger rod comes down but doesn’t do much. Not sure what was on we reeled it in to see that it was a small spearfish. Woohoo for a clean release. We set back up and about thirty minutes later the long rigger comes flying out, and we were on again. Brian slides in the chair and starts reeling. Within minutes we have a beautiful Mahi Mahi (dorado) on the boat and in the fish bag. If that wasn’t enough, with less than twenty minutes left, we hooked up to a 519.5lb Blue Marlin. It was a team effort between Sybil and Brian but we eventually got it to the boat. What a great crazy day.
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!
