Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament Update

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

The above video comes from the HIBT website. The Maggie Joe can be seen in the video at several points (look for the yellow hull!). Maggie Joe is featured at 1:25 and 1:40 during the video with a Blue Marlin on the line jumping through the water.

Captain Mike and the Maggie Joe finished Day 1 with 1 Blue Marlin and 1 Spearfish tagged.

The video also has some great information on the tournament specifications as lighter tackle is used in this tournament with greater points awarded for fish billfish caught on lighter tackle.

Good luck to Maggie Joe and Captain Mike as they look to build on their catch during Day 2.

Maggie Joe Tournament Update

Monday, July 25th, 2011

Captain Mike and the Maggie Joe are starting off the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament in Kailua-Kona, HI today in fashion!  The Maggie Joe is hosting Angler Team 19 today representing Shoal Haven Game Fishing Club in Australia.  The boys are off to a great start with a tag and release on 1 Pacific Blue Marlin at an estimated 130 lbs. and a tag and release on 1 Spearfish.

The HIBT has two competitions built in the tournament.  First, the 34 different Angling Teams from across the globe rotate boats on a daily basis and  compete with each other.  The boats also compete against each other as well for most fish caught during the tournament.

Currently, Captain Mike and the gang are deep sea fishing off Ho’okena, Hawaii and are hoping to find some more fish as the day and tournament progresses throughout the week.  Good luck!

Having some fun!

Captain Mark working up a sweat in the fighting chair!

Captain Mike, Captain Mark and Mate Arya spent the day having some fun while deep sea fishing in Kona, Hawaii while waiting for the prestigious HIBT.  Captain Mike and the Maggie Joe were again invited to participate in the HIBT – an invitation only tournament featuring some of the best sport fishing teams from around the world.

Captain Mark reeled in an estimated 100 lb Blue Marlin before tagging and releasing it alongside the boat.

Sport Fishing Tournament Update

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

It’s the second day of the Skin’s Tournament in Kona, Hawaii and the Maggie Joe crew hooks up, reels in and then tags and releases an estimated 120 lb Blue Marlin.  Deckie John reports some great video footage was taken of the fish jumping at the back deck and will be posted sometime tomorrow or the next day.  Check back for updates and video footage.

The Skin’s Tournament is a 3 day event, each day acting as an independent largest marlin-caught-winner-take all sport fishing tournament.  Only marlin over 500 lbs. may be captured, all others are released, and the days purse money goes to the largest marlin boated.

Good luck to the Maggie Joe crew as they search for a big ole grandma blue marlin off the Kona, Hawaii coast today and tomorrow.
