CATCH REPORT

Catch information courtesy of Shawna Haynes of the charter desk at Kona Marina (329-5735).

If you catch a fish on rod and reel in West Hawaii waters bigger than one on the list, take it to the fuel dock to be weighed and recorded.

If you weighed it somewhere else, call me at 885-4208 and leave a message. A complete list of June billfish catches will be in the August issue of Hawaii Fishing News.
