Fishing has picked up in Kona this past week. I have been fishing on Ez Pickens with Jason (Tiny) and Andrew (Sheep Dog) with their
I had a Blast with you guys last week. I hope you get into a Grander for Lou. I lost my Marlin but at least I had him on and learned a lot from Rocky on fighting A big fish. Next year will be my time. I landed on Sun. and it was snowing. Well Back to work.
Thank you for the great trip a couple of weeks back–had a ball. It was nice to be on a boat captained by a pro, which was spotless to boot. We had a great dinner at the restaurant that night—the fresh fish just added to it too. It was great to meet you and spend the time on your boat.
Libby and I had a great time with you last Thursday. While we didn’t catch a Marlin, the 46″ Amberjack gave me a good fight. I hope next time we come back we can bring our sons.
I spent several hours on the internet searching for a charter service. I found your charter prices for the size of your boat to be “the best deal in town”.
Little did I know that we would be eating several meals of fresh Tuna. But the highlight of the full day charter was the 8’7″ Blue Stripped Marlin that I caught. What a thrill that was!
Once again, I would like thank you and your staff for the great time on the waters of Kona.
I just wanted to say thanks for the 3rd awesome fishing trip in a row. Last year I was lucky enough to catch a 95 lb. sailfish and Russ caught a 180 lb. blue marlin, and we got several mai mai, ono, and tuna on the south point 2 day trip. this year I was lucky enough to catch a 300 lb. blue marlin and Gayle caught a 150 lb. blue marlin. what a trip it was. You, your boat, and the crew is the best thanks again.
Thanks for a great fishing trip. You and Ricky made the whole experience one to remember.
I just wanted to tell you we all had a great time last Thursday and I can’t wait to do it again in May with my kids!
Thanks again for the fantastic fishing charter. All the best to you and I hope we go fishing again sometime in the future.
I’ve been around game fishing long enough to know it’s not just luck. It all reflects on the skippers preparation and attention to detail, from the sharpness of your hooks, maintenance of your boat and fishing gear, decisions on where to go, what speed, what to troll, choice and placement of your lures, to crew work, concentration etc. – and you are very focused!
Thanks again for a great day of fishing on the 19th. We are already looking at our calendar for some dates for next year.
