Whipsaw Sport Fishing Catches 615 lb. Pacific Blue Marlin


Whipsaw Sport Fishing Catches 615 lb. Pacific Blue Marlin on July 22, 2015. It was on an afternoon half day private charter that Whipsaw sport fishing caught 2 Pacific Blue Marlin. The weather was great. The Pacific Ocean was flat. It was an afternoon bite! Captain Duffy and Shane headed out on an afternoon half day private charter. Shane set all the lines and after about an hour the center rigger came crashing down! Frank jumped into the chair and began fighting the fish! After about 45 minutes they had a 175 lb. Pacific Blue Marlin lying on the deck of the Whipsaw!


After all the Hi-5’s, Duffy set the lines and before he could take a break, WHAM! the center rigger came down again! This time they were in for a huge battle! The line was ripping off the reel like crazy! After clearing the rest of the lines Captain Duffy through the Whipsaw into reverse! Sea water was dumping into the back of the boat like a waterfall as the crew was trying to calm the fish down before he spooled them! Finally they got the fish under control and they were able to fight the fish. It took about an hour and a half, but they got the fish on the boat.

When they got back to the harbor they weighed the fish and it came in at a whopping 615 lbs. Congratulations to Captain Duffy, Shane and the entire crew onboard the Whipsaw.

You too can catch a nice Marlin! Give Whipsaw Sport Fishing a call at (808) 393-2000 today to book your charter!

Denise grabbed one rod and started working and Paul grabbed the other rod. They both worked hard reeling in their fish. Paul’s fish came in first and Shane took care of it. Paul’s Ono was a nice 20 lb. Ono. Denise’s Ono was a little harder! It took her about 15 minutes to get her Ono to the boat, but she was a great angler!

Bill is from Australia. He booked a three-quarter day private charter for a party of four onboard the Whipsaw for May 15th. They arrived at the dock around 5:45 am where they met Captain Mike and Shane. They left the dock around 6 am and headed for the fishing grounds. They caught a few Skipjack Tuna and a Mahi Mahi and were closing in on the time to head back to the dock.

Captain Mike saw a small pile of birds and headed in their direction. As he approached, WHAM; the rigger came down. The reel started screaming and then the other rigger came down! Then the two corners went off and we had 4 fish on with reels screaming!

Shane jumped up and took control. He cleared the only two remaining lines that were not hooked up and assigned a rod that was hooked up to each person. He directed each angler as to how to bring in their fish. It was very exciting! Lines were getting crossed, but Shane uncrossed them as soon as he saw it. After a few frightening moments, Shane began bringing them onboard the boat one at a time. They got them all! What a prize for Bill and his gang! Bill and his gang came out with Whipsaw Sport Fishing and got 4 Yellowfin Tuna! The smallest was 110 lbs. and the largest was 145 lbs. What a day!

Deep sea fishing – HYC’s Annual Senorita’s Tournament

deep sea fishing senortia's tournament

Deep sea fishing – Senorita’s Tournament

Hawaii Yacht Club’s Senorita’s deep sea fishing Tournament. It was held on April 18th in Honolulu! It was a beautiful sunny day. The temp was 84 degrees. We all met at the boat at 5:00 am and headed our to the starting point. It was a shotgun start at 6:00 am and we were off! Shane set all the lines out and we were all set for the big day! Our first strike came at around 7:00 am and it took the port rigger. Sasha jumped into the fighting chair and did a wonderful job reeling in a beautiful 20.5 lb. Mahi Mahi.

After we got the Mahi Mahi onboard the action slowed down for a while. We hit all of our favorite fishing spots without a strike. it was very frustrating! But that’s deep sea fishing! Hours of boredom followed by moments of excitement. Around 2:00 pm it was time to head back. We had to be at the dock no later than 5:00 pm.

As we were approaching Pearl Harbor, the starboard corner went off. This time Denise jumped into the fighting chair! She was really into it! She started reeling that fish in like there was no tomorrow! When the fish got close to the boat Shane and Rick grabbed the line and Shane was able to gaff the fish. It was a 36 lb. Alua! Unfortunately, Alua is not one of the qualifying fish for this tournament. But Denise had fun reeling it in anyway and we all had a fun with that. At that point we were running late! We didn’t think we were going to make it back to the dock at the Hawaii Yacht Club by 5:00 pm.

We pulled into the channel at 4:55 and we just made it! We weighed our fish and our Mahi Mahi was the biggest Mahi Mahi of the day! Not to mention it took 3rd place in the tournament! It was a slow day, but that’s deep sea fishing! Everyone had a blast and we walked away with a few bucks!
