Paul Blandford: Hebi, Aku, Mahi & Barracuda

Paul’s fish were caught off the Kona coast by hook and line aboard his boat ‘Making Memories'.

Paul and his family relocated to the Big Island of Hawaii in 2017. They jumped right into learning the Hawaiian culture and also purchased a boat to learn the Kona waters. When asked why he named his boat ‘making memories’ he replied, “At the end of the day, it’s not what we have or what material’s we’ve gained, it’s all about the memories we have made throughout our life”.

When not fishing you can find Paul paddling for the outrigger canoe club Kai Ehitu and enjoying time with his friends and family. He is a former pro baseball player and served on the police force.
