Day 4 of HIBT

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Captain Mike and the Maggie Joe crew hooked up 4 times during Day 4 of the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament.  On board were anglers from the Kona Game and Fishing Club.  1 spearfish was caught and released while deep sea fishing off Kona, Hawaii, giving the guys some points for the day.  With Day 5 starting tomorrow and Maggie Joe still in contention for the top boat, let’s all wish Captain Mike and the guys the best of luck!

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.

Having some fun!

2nd Marlin tag and release of the day!

Congratulations to Phil and the Maggie Joe crew as they tagged their second Blue Marlin of the day here in beautiful Kona, Hawaii.  Maggie Joe,  though based in Honolulu, Oahu at Kewalo Basin next to Waikiki, continues to excel in the waters off Kona, Hawaii.  Captain Mike and crew are on a hot string themselves as they continue to haul in marlin after marlin during their sport fishing adventures off Kona, Hawaii.

Marlin on Deck!

Mahalo to Lowell for choosing Maggie Joe Sport Fishing.  Lowell joined us for a day of deep sea fishing outside of Kona, Hawaii aboard the Maggie Joe.  It was an action packed day as we saw a double marlin strike go off.  The first marlin came in and was tagged and released.  The second marlin was hurt and it was taken aboard.  It was Lowell’s first marlin caught and we were happy he could do it with us.  Aloha!

Blue Marlin tag and release off back deck

Captain Mike sent in this photo from the Maggie Joe during a sport fishing charter off Kona, Hawaii.  Captain Mark’s father joined Captain Mike and the Maggie Joe crew for a day of deep sea fishing off Kona and was able to reel in this nice Blue Marlin.  The marlin was tagged and released, hopefully to be caught again during the upcoming fishing tournament.

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.
