Let’s have some fun with two versions of the same story. The first is the language of those that spend considerable time on the water, especially the ocean. The second is the version in plain english.
The nautical version: The Scott family being ocean lovers decided to take a fishing trip on their favorite VESSEL. Upon arriving at the SLIP the captain greeted them warmly and asked them to be careful as they stepped on the COVERING BOARD to enter from the STERN. As they entered the COCKPIT they noticed that their favorite boat had a new fighting chair to hold the SHIMANO 130’S. Quickly the deckhand oriented the first angler to the new chair while the rest of the family got comfortable in the SALOON. Refreshments were stored in the GALLEY and the trip got UNDERWAY. The captain slowly pulled away from the dock while the deckhand moved to the BOW to untie the PAINTER. Slowly the boat left the harbor and soon the lines were set for fishing. Two lines were set on the PORT side and two lines were set on the STARBOARD side. It was not long until the TEASER did its job and a Marlin bit the LONG CORNER. As is common practice the Marlin was released unharmed and the day was a success. Once back in the harbor the captain used the HELM and the engines deftly to back in to the dock while the deckhand placed the FENDERS as the boat was stored for the night.
The english version: The Scott family being ocean lovers decided to take a fishing trip on their favorite boat. Upon arriving at the parking place the captain greeted them warmly and asked them to be careful as they stepped on the railing of the boat to enter from the rear. As they entered the open fishing part of the boat they noticed their favorite boat had a new fighting chair to hold the reels and poles. Quickly the deckhand oriented the first angler to the new chair while the rest of the family got comfortable in the indoor covered area. Refreshments were stored in the kitchen and the trip started. The captain slowly pulled away from the dock while the deckhand moved to the front of the boat to untie the rope attached to the buoy. Slowly the boat left the harbor and soon the lines were set for fishing. Two lines were on the left side of the boat and two lines were tied on the right side. It was not long until the plastic fake fish with no hooks did its job and a Marlin bit the line that was set off the left back corner of the boat. As is common practice the Marlin was released unharmed and the day was a success. Once back in the harbor the captain used the steering wheel and the engines deftly to back in to the dock while the deckhand placed rubber inflatables to keep the boat from rubbing the boat next to it as the boat was stored for the night.
The new year 2020 has already used up one month. Fishing continues to be steady with our beautiful striped marlin and spearfish cooperating. On the Kohala Coast the humpback whales are abundant and putting on their show for all to see. It won’t be long and they will be migrating north to the coastal waters of Alaska. What an extraordinary journey for the giants of the sea. Their new born babies will be making their first of many treks across the Pacific. Our fishing fleet of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa are in great shape sporting new carpet in the Mauna Kea as well as a new fighting chair. Kona waters have been normal for the winter with light swells most days. As always we are spoiled by our fishing conditions. We look forward to a great year. Happy New Year to all!!!
What a treat for the Colton family. Under the great team of Captain Tony and Carlton “The Teacher” our charter hooked three Blue Marlin and landed two. Exciting for all on board. The team released one, one released itself ( Good for him ) and one was kept for smoking. Memories are made for a lifetime when you experience the calm, beautiful waters off the Kona coast.
FIshing to many is getting a worm, baiting a hook, sitting on a dock, getting bored and then deciding a swim is much more fun. We would like to let you experience fishing like you have never imagined. This is done by booking a trip on the Kona Fishing Charters luxury vessels.
Our real desire is to create MEMORIES for a lifetime. When you get back to shore after spending time with us you will tell your friends and family what a great experience you had. Starting with meeting our friendly and competent crew. Next you stepped onto a beautiful boat that was clean, comfortable and spacious. As the boat left the harbor you were given a lesson on the proper way to use a fighting chair as well as visiting the captains bridge to see how we navigate our crystal clear waters.
Throughout the day you will see volcanoes, dolphins, flying fish, whales in season, and hopefully the island of Maui. You can get a history lesson on the native Hawaiians while relaxing waiting for the big fish to take our lures. Yes, we even hope that your memories include catching and releasing the Blue Marlin regarded as the most exciting sportfish in the ocean. Along the way your memories may include catching dinner for you and your family. That includes the delicious Ahi Tuna, Mahi Mahi and Ono. You can relax in our air conditioned salon or hang out on the top deck letting the warm sea breeze add to your enjoyment.
As you step off our boat at the end of the day we bid you farewell with a big Mahalo for allowing us to become part of your Hawaii memories.
Imagine what is possible in paradise. Everyone knows the beauty of the landscape: dramatic waterfalls, towering volcanoes, incredible sunsets, luas on the beach, breaching whales, surfing waves and flowering trees.
On the big island you can go back in time and experience all that plus how the land looked as it was being formed from massive lava flows. If you have not visited the Kona coastline you are missing a real treat. As you troll along with us in our first class vessels you will experience the lava flows as the explorers did centuries ago. Also, you may be fortunate enough to catch dinner just like the native Hawiians. Get up at sunrise, jump on Mauna Kea or Mauna Loa, and be back to your lodging in time for afternoon drinks on the beach. We look forward to your visit. We will not disappoint.
