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.
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.
Long time client, Dan wanted to take out some buddies and catch something to eat. So they booked High Noon for a three quarter day. They wanted to target dinner fish so we stayed close to shore and did just that. Five minutes out of the harbor we were hooked to our first mahi mahi which we boated and continued to get lucky the rest of the day. For the last two hours we went out to the deep in search for a big blue but couldn’t find her. We spent the last half hour swimming in the crystal clear water of Kona. All in all a great day on the water with awesome people.
High Noon was double booked with two half day charters. Mike wanted to catch his daughter a fish so we decided to stay close to shore and target Wahoo. The group started to lose hope when all off a sudden the long rigger comes crashing down and we were on. Before Mike’s daughter could get into the chair, Kaitlin stole her Moms’ seat and started the battle. She ended up landing a nice 25lb Wahoo. Photo below:
Second trip started out with honeymoon couple Andrew and Teresa. All Andrew wanted to do was catch a Bill Fish. So we headed off shore for the elusive billfish. We worked one of our favorite spots for a while and just as we were about to head back to the harbor we hooked a spearfish on the stinger. Andrew did great job bringing it home for picture and let it go to swim another day.
