Ono Day is a “Good Day”. Ono (OH-no). Actual Hawaiian word, meaning good or delicious. Ono in Hawaii is Wahoo in other parts of the country. Linda Shive and her husband visiting from South Bend, Indiana were attending a conference on the Big Island and took a day to enjoy some fun family fishing. We headed out early and had a bite right out of the gates! Having just finished putting the lures in the water and rounding the point headed south, the short rigger line came down! We are hooked up! Linda gets in the chair and quickly brings the 16+ pound Ono to the boat and proudly announces this is her biggest fish ever. I am certain it was her that got hooked for life… We cleaned and packaged the fish for the couple to take back with them to the Four Seasons Resort where they were staying during their trip to the Island.
