These stoked anglers fired on the ono! Ono, aka wahoo, are one of the fastest swimming fish in the ocean, making it that much more challenging to catch. The ono is best known to "sports" fishermen as a prize game fish, because of their speed and high-quality flesh. Way to fire guys!

Coleman from Alberta landed this mako shark while fishing with us here in Maui. Makos are one of the only sharks that will chase and eat a lure. This shark was released after a few photos. Way to go Coleman!

After having jam packed their last day on the island, Chris and Katie were eager to go sportfishing before they left. They signed up for an afternoon 4hr. Private charter with high hopes of catching something, anything. The weather took a turn for the worst and started pouring, but these two weren't gonna let a little rain ruin their last day, last adventure. Heading out towards Lanai, Captain Patrick and mate Zach trolled them into the right spot. Low and behold, this pacific blue marlin struck the purple softhead and Chris was in for the fight of a lifetime!
