January 18, 2012 John Rainey’s Spearfish

I had to cancel the last three charters due to weather.  In Kona, we are lucky enough to have four massive volcanoes that block the tradewinds.  It can be blowing 20-25mph on the Hilo side of the island and our waters will be as flat as a lake.  The last few days however the wind blew straight out of the north at 20mph and it just made difficult and unpleasant to fish.  John Rainey fishes every year with me and today we got a small window of calm water so we decided to give it a try.  The fishing wasn’t great but we did manage to get a nice short nose spearfish for dinner that weighed about 25lbs!
