August 23, 2011 Kona Fish Report – Dennis and Max Day 2!

Dennis and Max took two days off to tour the island and were ready to fish.  They spent the last two days going to the volcano and looking for waterfalls on the Hilo side of the island.  We left the harbor a little later than usual because their alarm didn’t go off.  Oh well, it happens right?  Since we had a lot of bites south, we decided to head back down there.  Max caught a blue the last trip out so Dennis was first up.  About midday I ran right into the same areaI had fished the previous day.  In almost the same spot we caught our first blue marlin yesterday, another hungry fish was waiting.  The marlin ate the same lure on the long rigger and took off with a series of jumps.  Dennis strapped himself into the fighting chair and fought the fish to leader in about 20 minutes.  It was his first blue marlinand I estimated it at about 200lbs!  They are planning to come back for another fishing trip in a few months so hopefully we can get them soemthing even bigger!
