6/2/10 Summers here!

Today we took a 1/2 day group charter from the cruise ship. We left around 8:30 a.m. and went south. Fishing still hit or miss, we would be happy to see anything in our 4 hour tour. Around 9:30 we picked up a spearfish, lady angler from Oklahoma, first fish and she was ecstatic! We hooked another spearfish shortly after and released it after a few photos. The day couldn't get any better in my mind, considering the action that's been around. But in Kona, there's one thing we all know, it's that you never know!
A few minutes before pulling the lines in right in-front of the harbor, a nice size blue crashes the short rigger. Awesome bite, but the fish shakes free after a quick run. Josh winds the lure back up to position, hoping it never got stunned by the hook. Eyes peeled on the lures, up it comes on the long corner. One quick lunge and it was on! After a 20 minute fight and a spectacular show for all to see, leader was within grasp. Josh did a great job and we had it subdued. The great fish topped the scales at 692 lbs. First time angler had an absolute blast, he decided to get a head mount of his trophy of a lifetime.

Aloha, Capt. Teddy Hoogs
