Hooked Up Sportfishing released two blue marlin while fishing in Kona Hawaii on Monday. We also had another blue marlin up on a lure but did not stick and we lost it. We troll 5 lures and two teasers at 8 knots. The lures are for all the pelagic fish – marlin, mahi mahi, ono and tuna. Deep sea fishing in Hawaii is picking up and the fishing reports from other boats are looking really good. This time of year the blue marlin fishing is best then ono and ahi yellow fin tuna.
Summer is here but we have no tourism due to Coronavirus.. Hawaii has a mandatory 14 day quarantine for any one flying in to Hawaii. Today Hawai‘i has extended its 14-day mandatory travel quarantine for out-of-state arrivals through the end of July, Governor David Ige announced Wednesday. Ige said the state is working toward and would find a “safe and secure manner” to restore trans-Pacific flights and breathe life back into the state’s beleaguered tourism industry, but he offered no specifics on what that process would look like other than that it would be a “system of layered screening.”
