    why do people on the islands send me hate e-mail???

    Not likely, but I'm saying there are plenty of legit possibilities.

    why do people on the islands send me hate e-mail???

    Before everyone starts jumping on the guys in the pic, we should know the circumstances behind it. Is it possible that the fish came up already dead? Were all of these guys on the same boat? How often do these guys keep when they catch? Maybe these represent the only bills they have taken...

    Question about Hawaii...

    Yellowbanks, your first post had a an attitude about it, and I'm not surprised by the responses you're getting. Had you done a search before you posted, you would have had all your questions answered, there are several threads about this very thing. You knock the way things are done in a place...

    Getting Back After It

    I'm heading back to HI starting Jan 1 and will be fishing Kona 1/9-1/15 (or so.) I'll be fishing on Anxious and want to offer any military personnel a day or two on the water. If you'd like to go, send me a PM and we'll figure out days. This is nothing more than a gesture of thanks to you...

    Kona in June/July?

    There's a thread at the top of this forum that has a good bit of info about boats in Kona. Thattime will be great for a shot at blue marlin and yellowfin tuna, and will give you a fair chance at mahi mahi, ono(wahoo), shortbill spearfish, and a bunch of others. Share carters are available, but...

    Huge Billfish Brought IN!

    Come on man, that "little mahi" in his pic is easily 15-20 pounds larger than the biggest one you've posted. Out of curiosity, were you the wireman on the blue?

    What Happened to...

    This is exactly my point. I have no problem with anyone posting whatever they want. But add a little something to it, and make the pics worth posting. Any of us who fish Hawaii regularly have been in mahi blitzes. We've all filled the hold with shibi. The reports that garner the most respect(and...

    Lahaina Harbor Fishing Report July 24, 25, 26. 2008

    WORLD CLASS BLUE MARLIN

    Yeah, I'm A real dumbass. I forgot every day is a grander day, in Lahaina. Point is, three blues is a hell of a day, no matter what island, let alone what part of the world.
  148. Seekin' Makaira

    WORLD CLASS BLUE MARLIN

    Nice work. Nothing wrong with releasing a big female, all she's going to do is go and make more! Unreal that even so you got to catch three blues out of Lahaina. What boat are you crewing on?

    Kona Fishing Headlines for June 1, 2008

    Here's a pic of the Team Anxious fish caught during the Classic. We actually took the 50 daily both days with it, even though we were far outclassed by the 188.

    Actually, kite fishing has been around far longer than Da Rig, but the point is not lost in that it's an extremely effective tuna technique.

    Suggestion

    I was talking more of a resource for people to look at that contained info/contacts for the charter fleet. Jeff Rogers does a monthly recap of his trips, I think that might be closer to what you're talking about..
  159. Seekin' Makaira

    Suggestion

    Seeing as how the Hawaii forum has at least a weekly question asking for charters in Kona/Lahaina/etc., how about making a sticky with links to all the charters with feedback. I don't know if this has been done here before, but it could certainly be a good reference point, and would help...

    Is Maui any good in September

    All you manage to do is point out your glaring inability to comprehend the most basic of sentences. I think if you plan on fishing in ANY place you're not familliar with, you should do some research so you don't wind up taking a boat ride. Hawaii is well regaurded as one of the top fisheries...

    1. The point is you are bitching about something that is 100% your fault. When you go to New York, do you buy the watches from the street vendors? And before you say, "I don't go to New York," you should get the point. and I'm pretty sure today is after Sept '07, correct? 2. I Googled...

    Is Maui any good in September

    Of course, a great alternative is doing even the smallest bit of research to find out what the fishing is like at any given time. Invest another five to seven minutes, and you should be able to figure out which charters are the most consistant performers. Or you could go blind and bitch...

    That's the way it's been for a long time, and it's also the reason that charter rates on all the islands are comparatively low. If you want to keep some fish, just talk to the captain before you leave, or even better before you book. If his policy isn't to your liking, call someone else, there...

    Marlin Charter Out of Kona

    I fish with Neal Isaacs on the Anxious when out West. When Neal isn't running the boat, Jeff Metzler is great at the helm. Also, Brian, First Mate on Anxious is top notch. Rates are about $650 a day.
