Hilo Trollers re­sults

Hawaii Tribune Herald - - SPORTS -

The Lau­rie Marie 7 with cap­tain Brian Ca­triz and an­gler Ben Maran­tan landed the largest ahi and fish, a 172.3-pounder, at the first Hilo Trollers tour­na­ment of the year on April 8.

The largest Ono was 41.2 pounds on the Kawaip­il­ialoha by cap­tain Charles Lewis and an­gler Nathan Ore­villo.

The sec­ond largest fish was an 83-pound ahi on the Kawaip­il­ialoha. The crew also hooked a mahi mahi, and that gave them three dif­fer­ent flag fish and put them in the lead for the cov­eted Fish­er­man of the year award.

The largest mahi mahi was 23.2 pounds on the Honey Girl by cap­tain Gill Kualii and an­gler Leia DeMello.

Both the Honey Girl and Lau­rie Marie 7 landed two flag fish so they are not far be­hind in the com­pe­ti­tion for Fish­er­man of the year.

The Grand Cham­pion award is only given when a boat has two or more dif­fer­ent flag fish, and it is given for to­tal weight. That award went to the Lau­rie Marie 7 for a com­bined to­tal weight of 210.9 pounds.

The gift cer­tifi­cate do­nated by S. Toku­naga Store for the first qual­i­fy­ing fish of the tour­na­ment went to Kay LC 5 with cap­tain Aric Okuda for a 17.9 pound Ono. The gift cer­tifi­cate do­nated by J. Hara Store for the largest aku went to the Noe’ula with cap­tain Ran­dall Frias for a 12.5-pound aku.

The Trollers will con­tinue to ac­cept food do­na­tions for the Food Bas­ket at check-in. The Trollers will also con­tinue the an­nual Opala Award for the boat that col­lects the most ocean trash and re­cy­cles it.

The next tour­na­ment is sched­uled for Sun­day, May 6, weather per­mit­ting. En­try forms are due at the two tackle stores noted above or at Boat House Hawaii by 4 p.m. on Fri­day.
