For your own taste of Hawaiian fishing, join Mariah Sportfishing and see what it’s all about! Captain Jay Lighty has been fishing these productive waters for over 25 years. He’ll take you to the deep waters out of Kailua-Kona, and show you the best spots for catching big fish.
Capt. Jay will take you out on his 28’ Blackman offshore sportfishing boat which is custom built for exploring Kona waters. The boat can accommodate up to 5 people, and it’s accessible by wheelchair from the dock. There’s a private toilet on board for your convenience, as well as an icebox, a fridge, and an ice machine.
All the fishing equipment you’ll need will be provided on board – Shimano rods and reels. The captain will have live bait ready for you, and he’ll provide you with a fishing license. He’ll be more than happy to clean and fillet your fish, so you can look forward to tasting your catch upon your return home.
You’ll start fishing the minute you leave the harbor – a mile out is a mile deep. These blue waters are home to a variety of fish species, so expect to target Barracuda, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, and Spearfish.
Kids are welcome to come, as Capt. Jay has had his grandkids out on the water since they were very little. He loves spending time with kids and teaching them about fishing, so this can be a great family adventure! Make sure to bring some sunscreen, as well as food and drinks for your refreshment.
Explore the turquoise waters of Hawaii with Mariah Sportfishing, and have an unforgettable fishing experience!
