Birds and Bait Delight While Fishing in Kona

The ocean is alive and The Bite is happening!

We were fishing a Kona tournament on the Bite Me 4 when we came across this school of ahi, just a few miles outside Honokohau Harbor. We took the opportunity to reel in a small tuna and use it as live bait for awhile. fishing ahi tuna kona 2we got two knockdowns and watched a marlin go after two lures. It was "hootered," which means the curve of the hook got wrapped around over the bill insted of getting hooked into the mouth.

When a fish gets hootered it usually gets away as soon as the hook slides off. Sure enough, our marlin peeled out line, and then jumped off. Its not uncommon to hook-up to a 300-400 pound blue marlines in these Hawaiian waters. Occassionally you might even catch a big 700-800 pounder, but those are really large ones! And the biggest marlins top 1,000 pounds! That's what makes marlin fishing in Kona so exciting!
