Big Island News - 'Start Fishing, Start Fishing, Start Fishing!'

No - I'm not talking about marketing or lead generation.  Just wanted to share a little more about my island home.  The Big Island tends to get comments from people about not having much to do, but there is tons to do if you don't need a major shopping mall :-)  So I like to let people know about as many of the activities and events that one can participate in!

Did you know that Kona is the home to fabulous sport fishing and of the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament.  This year marks the 47th Annual tournament, and even if you don't go out on one of the boats the wiegh ins at the end of each day are great fun for spectator participation.  I have grown up with this event in my front yard and it still holds its appeal.  So for all you anglers out there - keep Kona in mind for deep sea fishing!

It's all about perceptions - before I visited the Big Island for the Resort Conference, I thought I'd be bored, since I don't like walking, climbing, fishing...but the island captivated me, and I'll be back. There's so much to do there, and there was no way I could see everything in just a few days. Thanks to you and the others who showed us what it's all about.

Now that sounds like a fun time!! Growing up on the Puget Sound, WA my family has always enjoyed finishing, crabbing and spending time on the water. Maybe next time I visit Hawaii I will take a finishing trip. Have fun in the Sun! Take care!
