blue marlin kona hawaiiThis is Capt. Shawn Slattery with a offshore fishing update for the end of 2019 and beginning of 2020, out of Kona, Hawaii.

We kicked off 2020 in great fashion fishing with client, Greg M. and family in the Kona New Years Day Tournament. We had a great three days of fishing with Greg, placing 4th overall in the tournament and landing a total of three blue marlin (2 were big girls over 400lbs each) and two striped marlin!

Needless to say, we’re pretty sure Greg is still smiling and his arms are probably still a bit sore. Congratulations to Greg! It was smiles all around 🙂

kona blue marlinThe end of the first week in January (the 7th) Wayne H. was onboard with us at Kona Cowboy Sportfishing Charters. On a full-day charter, Wayne went 2 for 2 on blue marlins. One was 125lbs and the second fish was 500+ lbs. Great work Wayne!

On the same full-day charter, we also brought in 2 ahi (bigeye tuna).
Not a bad day at all!
