What is your fish policy?
Through out the years the fish policy of Kewalo Basin has became the standard and most companies are the same. Clients are entitled to 50% up to fifty pounds of fish. Fifty pounds is a lot of fish! Fish over 100 pounds will not be cut. The reason for this is that through out the years people typically want a five to ten pounds of fish,but not all the fish. The left over fish is commonly sold at the fish market. With the selling of fish becoming common, charter companies have used this income to lower prices. The outcome has is better rates for the angler. The reason for the 100 pound rule is that once a large fish is cut it is no longer able to be sold at a fair price. 50 pounds out of a 500 pound fish is a lot of waste.
