Just wanted to say thanks for a great trip. We made a long run offshore, but it paid off. We ended up with 3 Mahi, 2 of them were nice sized. My wife ended up with the jackpot fish, hooked with a small popper on your light outfit. It gave her a pretty nice battle. Rick had to back down on it to keep it from taking too much line. It was pretty funny. We also got one on a live skipjack– I was surprised a Mahi that size ate it!
Great trip, tell Jim and Rick I said thanks again.
Here are a few photos, in case you want some material to post on the web. The last is a picture of the Mahi, fresh off the grill at Rosas. Thanks again!
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.
We had avery nice time. Your crew was excellent. We will be back again. Thank you so much. 🙂
We are already planning our trip for next year! I have a request in with my timeshare for The Kona Coast Resort so we will be closer to the marina.
Let Bevan and Olivia know we enjoyed meeting them and look forward to seeing them next year as well.
Just thought we would let you know Rosa’s cooked up our ono, and all our plates were wonderful. Thanks again for a great trip and the suggestion on Rosa’s Cantina.
Just a follow-up to say, again, how much we enjoyed our charter with you last Wednesday, and especially to thank you again for those wahoo fillets!!! I know it’s not something that all the captains do, and we really appreciated it. We prepared them as recommended and they were spectacular! Great recipe (panko, etc.). We’ll be happy to recommend “Hooked Up” to anyone we know traveling to Kona.
Julie and I had a great time with you guys….the marlin was a nice way to spend an afternoon, too!! No one believes that she was 625#…until they see the pics!!
Just wanted to send you a big thank you for the great day on the water. We all saw action and that’s we we asked for. Sometimes you tie into a big one, some times you don’t. It was a good day to be on the water.
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!
