June 4, 2011 Kona Fish Report – Out of Drydock For More Kona Ahi

It’s been just over a week since I last fished.  I took the boat into drydock for some yearly maintenance.  We ended up pulling the shafts and checking them as well as installing new props.  I also replaced the side windows from clear Lexan to dark tinted glass to give my clients a cooler ride downstairs.  The fighting chair was also completely refinished.  The boat got a good buff and wax job and a fresh coat of bottom paint.  She looks great and runs even smoother with the new props….So in the water she went Friday afternoon 6/3/2011. 

Saturday I hosted Lou and Jackie of Sparks, NV.  Lou and Jackie are avid flyfishermen and wanted to give offshore fishing a try.  We headed south of the harbor and caught a small mahimahi that Jackie reeled in.  As we headed farther south we found a big porpoise school that was holding fish so we put out the greenstick and were lucky enough to have a nice ahi blow up on the 2nd squid closest to the boat.  Lou saw the bite and quickly got in the chair and after a 15 minute fight landed his first ahi weighing 138lbs!
