KEKOA in hot pursuit!

Congratulations to the team on Mauna Kea for taking out the 2009 Lizard Island Classic with 11 fish tagged and released for the 7 days.

For KEKOA Jason Hassett and John Wildberger finished off with 5 elegible catches and 2 catches that were ineligible, one of which was a 1000lber for Jason on day 5. Jason finally got his girl!

Not to be outdone John caught Day sixes first marlin and the most memorable fish for the day a BIG 1200lber at No.5 Ribbon reef, which can now be seen on you-tube thanks to Kelly Dalling from Reel Chase and the Black Marlin Fishing Blog.
