We're back! The big vacation was a success and Billy managed to relax on his first trip in three years. It was a last minute (and I am talking 36 hours from tickets to flight) decision to fly to Kona for a solid week of R&R and some playing around with Kevin Nakamaru and his family. Many of you know Kevin as his paintings usually grace the cover of the Melton Tackle catalogue.

Anyway, the trip wass the bomb. The hospitality was perfect and Kevin even took us fishing on the Northern Lights his charter boat he runs out of Kona. I highly recommend it - www.fishingnorthernlights.com and of course we caught tuna even though Kevin snuck in some speed trolling for grander blue marlin for me. In the end Kate caught a 20 pound Ono (wahoo) and I pulled in the big one - 140 pound yellowfin! Kevin's daughter Gabby and Billy caught some smaller yellowfin on the kite. Cool.

Our first trip of the season is tomorrow and I am wishing some huge tuna for Jared and the boys. Billy is at the Inlet today marking the crack and for those of you who know BC is doing well - a five way bypass on Friday night and Billy brought him home yesterday!

Thats the news! Tight Lines!

Billy and the boys set a record, of course, and the Tuna Fever was in and out of the paint shop at Spencer Yachts in three days! She's still white and right now has no name but she is beautiful. Billy and Dickerson were cutting ne carpet for the salon today and waiting to be put back in the water. The boys are certainly anxious to start fishing again but I sometimes I think this wind will never stop. It has been blowing almost steady for three weeks and even the commercial fleet isn't reporting many catches. Seems like everyone is in the boat yard waiting for spring to arrive.

The outlook for spring and summer fishing is pretty good though if you believe the old timers (which I do). A normal labrador current and influx of fresh water snow melt in the Gulf of Mexico should provide us with a great yellowfin bit - as soon as the wind stops blowing!!!!

I did have a couple cancellations in May and June - June 16 and 17 are the only open days that month and in May we have the 13th, 26, 27 and 28th. On the weekend front we only have July 5, 13 and 27 between now and August. So give us a call (or email) and book your trip - you know you want to go fishing this year! Tight Lines!
