Kona Fishing Deep Sea Report April 12, 2016 – The Big Island, Hawaii – The fishing has picked up after a bit of a slowdown last week. On Tuesday, we Tagged & Released a nice Blue Marlin that went about 450-500 pounds. We also caught a nice Mahi Mahi, but lost it at the leader. Lately, there have been some other nice Blue Marlin caught. Also yesterday, another boat Tagged and Released a VERY nice Blue Marlin they estimated to be 900 pounds. There are still some Shotbilled Spearfish hanging around and a few Striped Marlin being caught. The water was a little bumpy last week, but things seem to be calming down. We are back on the building side of the moon now with the full moon next week, so the conditions are shaping for a good week of fishing ahead.

Fishing Trip Reviews
First time deep=sea fishing and hooked a 150 lb yellow fin tuna! It was a struggle but with the help and encouragement from Capt Brett and first mate Ryan I was able to land the tuna that was as big as me! Only thing I would change would be not to get seasick after all that exertion. Next time I will stay hydrated and let my Dad do more of the work reeling in the big fish. Jack G

I had not been offshore fishing in decades and Captain Jeff made me feel so at ease and all that was before I caught a 300 lb marlin. It just got better after that. I cannot suggest a better day.

Had the chance to book a Kona fishing charter on our trip to the big island and was fortunate to find a half day charter on the Humdinger on short notice. Having done a lot of deep sea fishing on party boats, I wasnt sure what to expect on a private charter. We never fished far from shore, maybe a mile or two at the most. We caught a small blue marlin and a rare speafish and missed a mystery bite. All in all it was a great day and the crew was fantastic. I would highly recommend them.

Realized it with a really nice Blue Marlin.The crew worked really hard on a couple of days were the fish were not. Itting so well. Kona is a beautiful place. It is also an excellent place to fish for Blues.
