Mikihala Sport Fishing

Mikihala Sport Fishing trips are tailored to what you want to do out there; from chasing down a trophy Marlin, to fishing the reef off Waikiki and everything in between. If you don’t see what you’d like to do on the menu, just ask and Captain Nick can probably accommodate.

Join Capt. Nick on your Hawaiian fishing adventure on board the “Mikihala”. She’s a comfortable 40’ Bertram, built to catch the biggest fish in the toughest weather. This spacious convertible caters to 6 guests with enough equipment for everyone on board. With fully functional kitchen, a private bathroom, an enclosed cabin with A/C, and a lounge area, the boat ensures a comfortable ride throughout the day.

Trolling lures is an effective method to find the fish which is how you’ll usually start the day. If you find the fish and they’re not biting the lures, you’ll try your luck with bait. I also have all the necessary equipment to bottom fish for Snapper in deep water or bottomfish the reef with spinning reels, which usually results in an exciting day on the water for the kids with lots of fishing action.

The fish you can catch here is on every angler’s bucket list - Tuna, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Barracuda, Jobfish, Amberjack, and more. Expect some reels screaming on this adventure.

You don’t need to worry about your license and fishing equipment - everything is covered by the crew. You only need to bring your favorite snacks, and drinks. Anything that keeps you safe from getting sunburnt is a good idea to bring as well.

Mikihala Sport Fishing offers only exciting trips. Book one and enjoy it!

    On a typical offshore charter, you'll leave the dock promptly at 6 am and, after a quick 5 minute idle through the Keehi Lagoon, you'll be on the open ocean. You’ll head out to deep water to hunt a monster Marlin, enjoying beautiful views the whole time. With any luck, you’ll put a trophy in the boat!

I have been fishing my whole life and I find nothing more relaxing than spending a day on the water. Growing up I spent most of my time fishing the lakes and rivers of New England but I have been in Hawaii for the last 10 years, honing my skills at catching monster Blue Marlin and Tuna. My number one goal is to make your fishing trip a success. If that means catching a big Marlin, then I will do what I think will maximize our chances of catching a big Marlin. If you have small children and would like to catch smaller reef fish in protected waters, then I will make that happen.
