had the pleasure to fish w an old friend and a new friend on the Makana Lani (Capt Kenny and mate Sean). So this was my first time back to the island since I moved away five years ago and the first Big Game trip w my two boys 8 & 10. Capt Kenny said the marlin bite was pretty good so we set out the lures and headed south. Sean did a great job teaching my boys what to do when we get bit etc.
10 minutes after learning the drill we get bit just south of VV buoy. The marlin went airborne instantly and we could tell it was pretty nice. My 8yr old who is 47lbs was in the chair when the fish hit so we clipped him in as I held the harness from behind and his brother helped to turn the handle. 35 minutes later we have a beautiful Blue next to the boat. Take some photos and swim her along side the boat until she was revived and kicking pretty good.
Had one other bite and pulled hook and an Aku stolen by a shark.
