Parker wins Boone award

Marlin Parker of the Marlin Magic won his second Richard Boone Award at the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament in Kailua-Kona.

The award is given to the charter boat captain who each year turns in an overall outstanding performance.

Parker is the son of Kona pioneer charter fishing captain George Parker, and he was named after his father's single-handed catch of a 1,002-pound Pacific blue marlin off Diamond Head in 1954, according to HIBT organizers.

The award is named for Boone, an actor best known for his starring role in the television series "Have Gun Will Travel."

Boone, who died in 1981, is remembered along the Kona Coast, especially among HIBT competitors for his fishing skills and for lending his popularity to the HIBT in its early days.
