Visions of Granders: Spearfish and Bullets

The spring and early summer bite heats up off Kona, Hawaii

The early summer fishing is already heating up for Capt. Chris Donato and Joe Byrum, fishing the calm waters off Kona, Hawaii, aboard Benchmark, Donato’s beautifully restored 37-foot Merritt. In this second video of the Visions of Granders series, the team target shortbill spearfish, one of the most elusive of the world’s billfish species. They also offer some excellent advice on how to fish bullet-headed lures for marlin and other pelagics.
