Bite Me’s Lucky Honeymooners

Kona Sportfishing BoatThe following TripAdvisor review comes from Kimberely, who was honeymooning in Kona recently: 

“When my fiancé and I decided on going to Hawaii for our honeymoon, we both knew that going sport fishing was on the top of our list for things to do. So the research began to find the best charter company in Kona.

“After comparing numerous companies, we decided to go with Bite Me and we definitely made the right decision. It was really easy to book and they were super accommodating when I asked to change the time of the fishing trip.

“We felt very fortunate to get Captain Brian and his deck mate Brad as our guides. They were so knowledgable and easy to get along with. The boat was clean and roomy. There was lots of space inside, as well as up top to sit and enjoy the view.

“The fishing was pretty slow at first, but they did their best to track down the fish. We decided to do a little snorkelling and went to a great spot–amazing fish and less busy than James Cook Monument.

“Once we started up fishing again, my husband and I started to get anxious as we were so excited to catch something but still no bites, Capt’ Brian and Brad just kept saying, ‘Don’t worry, honeymooners are always lucky.’

“Sure enough, as we were trolling back towards the port we got a bite! It was about a 20 minute fight, but we reeled in a 150 lb marlin. Everyone was excited we caught something, especially the two pontoon boats that decided to stick around and watch the show. On the way back to the

dock we had a MONSTER bite on, but the marlin outsmarted us. I guess, honeymooners are lucky!

“After we unloaded from the boat, we went to the Bite Me restaurant where we had some of the most delicious smoked salmon spread I have ever tasted. A definite must on your ‘to-do’ list for Kona! You won’t be disappointed :)”
