Star Fishing Report:

We fished one place or another all week. Tuesday Jeff was up the river for several Salmon and I went to the ocean for a quick limit of Lings and Blacks with some crab. Wednesday it was one of the nicest mornings on the ocean you could ask for and were they biting. Big Blacks and Lings mixed together all on one drift. Two passes and we were done on our way back to the crab pots that were loaded. Thursday was the first Halibut day and we were all set. Left the dock only to run into a 10' swell breaking three deep on the bar. It was totally unexpected and way above the forecast. We tried later but it got worse and the whole deal went in the ditch as we ran out of time due to the tide schedule for even a bottom fish trip. What a bummer. Jeff went up river for Salmon as a back-up and that didn't work either. Double bummer! Friday it laid down and we got out for the run up to the high spot. The current was running harder than we've ever seen it and made for really tough fishing. Everybody worked hard and finally we found some that were biting and got the limit at 3:00 and back to the dock at 5:15 for a twelve hour day on the boat. Thanks for sticking with it guys. Friday a better ocean made for a great run out but even a slower bite. I quit the halibut at 12:00 with nothing to go fish Ling Cod. That worked as we stopped at Blanco Reef for a limit in one pass. Jeff's crew were Halibut or bust and it paid off for them on the last two passes. With four on at a time it doesn't take long to limit the boat with fish to 50lbs. Sunday it was Lings and Blacks and crab with a couple of Vermillion and Canary's. This week it's ocean and river mix through the week. Halibut at the end of the month.

We finally got out for bottom fish on Saturday and Sunday after the wind quit and it was as good as you would expect. Lots of Ling Cod with nice Blacks to finish up with. Jeff was up-river with just enough salmon to keep it interesting. We start Halibut this week and the forecast looks good. HOT DOG!!! Lots of Ono in Kona with the Marlin offshore. We have a trip in mid June - have dates open. Call to get particulars. Could do a multi-day overnight trip with special rates.

The ocean boats are in the water and we're open for business. Jeff has been river fishing for salmon with both good and bad days since the 20th of April. The ocean has been too crummy to go for the last several days. With luck it will turn around for Halibut season mid month. We still have a few openings if somebody wants to go. HAWAII REPORT: We had a great time in Kona with good fishing and snorkeling. Multiple Ono and several Blue Marlin were the fishing highlights. We look forward to seeing all of our friends and customers this season. Lots of you have already called to book days. Thanks!
