Kona Fish Report – May 9, 2011 – Kona Ono

Mike Damon and his son Jesse joined me today on the Lepika for a 3/4 day charter.  We ran offshore looking for marlin and tuna but the bite seemed to have slowed.  At about 8am we found a nice pod of porpoise and worked them for about two hours without any luck.  There were some big ahi in the school but most of them were too deep and out of range of our lures.  As we headed back I decided to try our luck right in front the harbor for some ono.  We made three passes on Kaiwi Point without a bite.  On our fourth pass I marked a fish on my sounder at 20 fathoms and pointed it out to Mike who was upstairs with me.  As he looked at the screen I turned around to see a big ono dive onto the long corner lure from above.  Mike ran downstairs and in a few minutes had a nice 40lb ono in the box!
