People say a lot of things in fishing, but one thing when said is noncontroversial – when it is hanging on the scales and weighs 1,058
pounds – its a Grander.
Yesterday(Feb 18, 2015) was an epic “all Kona” kind of day when Capt. McGrew Rice and Carlton Arai took out famous Big Island author, lure maker and McGrew’s high school math teacher – Jim Rizzuto – and his grandson Kai and after a well executed 30 minute battle, returned to the scale with the third career grander of the dynamic duo team career of Rice and Arai.
For the past couple of weeks, back to back cold fronts have kept the winds up and boats in, but the past few days have laid down and the guys have been getting out and finding some nice ones – plus the winter striped marlin and spearfish.
There are 10 days remaining in Phase One of the Early Entry Program and if you like Free HMT Series “Wireman” brand T-shirts with your team/boat screened on them, get your entries in the mail (or in hand here) by March 1.
You could also win a pair of Maui Jim “World Cup” style sunglasses as each entry level you send in earns a ticket into a drawing.
The master file with all entry fee entry forms is attached, as is the 2015 Team form (for the peoples) and the Free T-shirt Form.
If you would like to enter early with a credit card, please contact me and I’ll send you those forms directly. We like to keep tabs on the
credit card forms we expect back, for your security.
Congratulations to Kai, Jim, McGrew and Carlton!
