February 2016 Kona Fishing Catch Report

Fishing Catch Report February 20, 2016 – Kona, Hawaii – The fishing has been up and down lately, but seems to be picking up a bit on the building side of the moon.  Earlier this week we tagged and released nice Blue Marlin about 400 lbs. on a half day fishing charter.  The day before that we tagged and released a pair of Striped Marlin we caught on a double header with one of the fish going about 40 lbs. and the second fish going about 60 lbs. That same day we missed a Shortbilled Spearfish that came up in the spread, but we were never able to connect.  Elsewhere, a few other boats were also seeing some good action with one tagging and releasing a nice Blue Marlin they estimated to be about 700 Lbs. and another boat in the area tagged 3 for 4 Marlin on the same trip.
