Kona Deep Sea Fishing Charter

Location: Kona, Big Island

Book a private fishing charter or join our 6 person shared charter to get out into the deep blue and enjoy Hawaii Sportfishing at its finest!

Our professional captains and boat crews provide expert experience and top-of-the-line equipment to ensure the best fishing advantage. Everyone from novice to professionals are welcome to join and will be sure to have a good time on the water in search of big game such as, marlin, tuna, mahi mahi, skipjack, wahoo, mackerel, and more.

Non-anglers who are looking to enjoy time on a boat with their families are welcome to come along as well.

You will keep your catch. On a Private Charter we are happy to cut up your catch for your BBQ here in Hawaii; as much as can reasonably be enjoyed while you’re here. On a Shared Charter, we insist on sharing the catch with everyone on board.


What to Expect

Before departing our Captain and Crew will introduce themselves and give a briefing on the boat itself.

If you are on one of our shared charters feel free to introduce yourself making new friends with the other guests on board as you will be a team for the next few hours!

As soon as we leave the harbor, the crew will set out the lures. Guests are encouraged to ask questions and try to understand the technique involved. We will use a trolling speed of around 6kts, large leaders, heavy line, and big-headed plastic lures, all of these techniques have proven to raise and strike the pelagic fish we target.

After the lines are all set and lures are out our crew will give everyone a demonstration and instructions on what to do when we have a fish on the hook.

Once we have been trolling for an hour or so the anticipation can start to wear off and everyone becomes more focused on the fishing. It’s important to understand that your Captain and Crew have been doing this for years and they know a big fish can strike anytime. You might not realize it but you Captain and Crew are very in tune with the surroundings, i.e. depth of the water, bottom structures, current, and many times they can predict a strike while you have no idea what is even happening. Often they may continue to work the same area in a figure eight running the same lures knowing the area has had recent action.

If we get a bite, the Captain and Crew are ready for the fight. During this intense time, they are bringing in all the extra line, clearing the deck, and encouraging the angler to keep fighting. They will encourage and coach the angler to help bring in the big fish.

Due to the fishery, type of fish and other factors, it will be at the Captains Discretion as to whether the fish caught will be killed or not.
