Since her arrival to Kona the Silky has been the only boat in the Kona fleet to have strictly adhered to tag and release of all billfish. The owner-operator is a true professional and has a wonderful reputation of being extremely accommodating to their guests. Captain John Bagwell has been fishing since 1970, starting in Daytona Beach, Florida and traveling to many places since that time. Daytona was just the start of what has become his his passion of marlin and big game fishing.
