Dee Bradford

Member since October 2014 Kailua-Kona, United States
Background
Captain Dee Bradford started fishing in Kona in the early 80s, and hasn't stopped since! He's owned and operated High Noon Sport Fishing charters for the past 25 years. Capt. Dee, who has been profiled in media such as Marlin Magazine and Deep Sea Fishing Network, loves nothing more than showing his anglers the nuances of Kona fishing. Describing the underwater terrain, discovering ledges and bouys where smaller fish congregate, demonstrating the fish finders and chart plotters which help immensely in finding fish...you name it, and he'll fill you in on all the 'need to know' information! When it comes to fishing, Capt. Dee loves trialing new techniques and sharing tricks and tips with fellow anglers. How about his favourite catches? Well, he has three 900 lb plus Blue Marlin under his belt, to name a few. On High Noon, you are not just a spectator but an integral part of the fishing experience, so come aboard and get ready to reel 'em in!
Techniques
The fishing in Kona is for Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Spearfish, Mahi, Ahi and Wahoo along with some of the smaller tuna species. We specialize in live bait fishing on light tackle as well as trolling for bigger fish like Blue Marlin and Ahi.
