One Day Was Not Enough Fishing in Kona
A swing and a miss! Sightings of fish either jumping in front of us or in the distance, we could not get one to go! This group of six friends and family came to fish Kona last week. They booked their family fishing trip a few months ahead of time and anticipated the trip from then on. The group arrived early and we headed out. We had so much fun with this group from the time they boarded till they departed that afternoon. Linda was the deckhand today, she was a busy girl. The day was just getting started when one of the girls spotted a tuna roll out to the side of the boat, I turned that way and in seconds we are hooked up with the line peeling off the reel. Unfortunately it dropped it after a couple of seconds. We ended up having an excellent day with porpoises swimming beside the boat, great snorkeling in Captain Cook Bay and many sightings of fish, even a huge blue marlin jumping 50 feet in front of boat. This proved to be so much fun for them that they called the next day and ask if we had an opening so they could go again because one day was not enough fishing in Kona ….we did! Needless to say, the second day was equally fun with no fish to report. They are good sports and assured us they are avid fishermen and women and understand you don’t catch all the time.
