Star Fishing Report:

Mark took off early this morning to go to Kona for a few charter trips. This past week we were able to get in two halibut make-up days. Both days we were back to the dock around 2:00 with limits ranging from 25lbs. to 45lbs. The other days were bottom fish days with somewhat tough fishing but we got them in. We fished the river last Wednesday and got one salmon. Jeff is going to try upriver again tomorrow. Good thing because the wind has come back. We'd probably be blown off if we had ocean fishing tomorrow. Next report July 4th when we'll also have a Kona report.

It was rough - flat in between through the week with the bite hot to cold as well. We even trolled for salmon one day for several hours and caught some. So that was a nice change. The river got good as water temps dropped with the cloudy rainy weather. We hope to be back to the ocean tomorrow an through the week.

The wind kept blowing and we kept going thanks to customers who were both fishermen and sailors. It was rough but they got full limits of everything. Thursday the wind quit and we ran on a pancake ocean to the high spot for halibut for the first day in six possibles. Finally!!! We started out with a bang with a dandy in the first ten minutes into it. The second was a 60 pounder. One hour later kept us up and at em. Jeff had left for the top where we had found them weeks before and called to tell us he had four. So we went there and got a fish a pass to finish up with a double to make for a real nice day to say the least. All the fish were in the 35lb. and up. Friday we had high expectations and the forecast was for wind but hoped it would hold off. Not - busted with 15/20. The wind waves were too much and we turned around one hour into it. We ended up bottom fishing for Ling limits and lots of color to make the day. Saturday turned into a commercial day and Sunday a charter with a late start due to tide/swell/fog but we got it in and done. Bottom fish and Hake boat runs will keep us busy this week. River salmon stalled with high water temps. We filled up the Kona schedule for June. Looking for fishermen for the first part of August. It'll be Blue Marlin and Yellow Fin Tuna/Ahi that time of year.
