Fishing in Kona is Best When You Catch Fish

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

Like with Sacramento real estate agents, I think some people tend to think all boat charters are the same. There are big differences among real estate agents, like boat charters. Possessing a license means nothing. First, there is an ability to comprehend, followed by ability to communicate, topped with a healthy dash of ethics, integrity and compassion, coupled with years and years of experience. But no, sellers and buyer often pick the next door neighbor, some random smiling stranger, or a cousin.

Same thing applies to choosing a fishing boat charter in Kona. You can do what I did with one year and spend a lot of money to go chasing marlin (with some guy who just moved to Kona from southern California), which you are pretty much guaranteed not to catch. Or, you can choose a guy who grew up fishing in Kona with his father. A highly experienced and busy captain who, in the 1980s at 6 years old, hung out with his dad running a boat charter and who eventually took over the business in the year 2000.

This is a guy who knows that lures work for some fish under certain conditions yet to catch mahi-mahi or ahi you probably need live bait. This is a guy who has 6 intricately rigged fishing poles off the back of his boat and does everything himself, no deck hand.

That is going to be some good eating. I can almost smell it grilling right now.

That is quite some fish, Elizabeth! You can grill that and feed the neighborhood!  I also love the name of the boat, "The Cherry Pit."

Elizabeth, what a great looking fish, and sure reminds me of my fishing excursion to Alaska last year.  Still have halibut and salmon in the freezer.

Debbie Reynolds We did grill the mahi-mahi, toasted macadamia nuts on top -- you stick the nuts to the fish with honey and then flip for a minute on the grill.

Myrl Jeffcoat Funny thing is the captain kept two of the fish. Maybe that's why our host who set this up did not tip him, LOL.

Joan Cox Well, we ate it all, so it's all gone now. Good thing we have a store nearby and we don't have to rely on our private fish pond to capture dinner for us like the ancient Hawaiians.
