    Why no more Kona Pier weigh-ins ??

    Hey guys. After fishing Kona many times over the years, I've always left wondering why, or whose decision was it to stop weighing- in fish at the old Kona Pier. I think it added to the whole experience- for fishermen and tourists alike, who came out to see all the big fish weighed-in. There...
