Fishing Report

Fishing Report from December 2016 through January  2017

After a slow start to our winter season things are looking up!  A few nice Marlin and Wahoo are showing up on the surface trolling boats and I've had some stellar trips lately using our Cannon down riggers. We are able to run our bait down to 320 ft. at times to get some of the bigger snappers and Trevally's that like the deeper water during the winter months.  We're looking forward to more good action!  For more posts and fish pictures please visit our Facebook page.  Mahalo!!
