Today Kona Sea Adventures had the honor of taking out a newly wed couple fishing. They told us that they were happy with catching any kind of fish but were pleasantly surprised to tag a Pacific Blue Marlin. The Marlin was fooled by a lure made by Captain Cyrus, just off the Kona coast, at VV buoy. After a hard fought 15 minute battle, the Marlin conceded defeat. We estimated the Marlin to weigh at least 200lbs. The Marlin was released without injury.
Kona Sea Adventures hooked up to a beautiful Ahi (Yellowfin Tuna) today 3 miles off the Kona coast. Roughly an hour into the charter, at Kona's open ocean fish cage, our customers were delighted when the fishing reel started to scream. Within 10 minutes, our guest had reeled in a 35lb Ahi caught on live bait. We sent her home with 20lbs of premium Ahi Tuna.
