Hooked On Kauai

If you’d like to experience the best fishing that Princeville, Hawaii has to offer with the help of an experienced and knowledgeable on-foot guide, then you need a tour with Hooked On Kauai!

As well as the plentiful waters of Princeville, your guide also offers fishing trips island-wide, depending on where the hottest bite is. They specialize in personalized freshwater and saltwater shoreline adventures for smaller groups (up to 4), families, and individuals. Kids 5 and older are more than welcome to join!

Their main aim is to provide their customers with educational, fun, and exciting fishing experiences while teaching them more about local wildlife and history. You could be fishing the sandy shorelines, rocky outcroppings, reservoirs, and fish ponds.

Depending on the fishing location and the bite, you could be reeling in GT, Barracuda, Bonefish, Amberjack, Queenfish, Flounder, Bass, Rainbow Runner, Needlefish, and even Sharks. You’ll get to try your hand at bottom fishing, spinning, and popping. Please note that all fish caught are to be released back into the water.

Hooked On Kauai will supply you with top-notch rods, lures, chairs, and coolers, as well as drinks. You should bring a bathing suit, polarized sunglasses, and sun protection. If you’re fishing from rocks and cliffs, pack appropriate footwear (Tabi’s are recommended).

Make sure to book your trip at least 24 hours in advance so your guide can customize the trip according to your skill level, group size, and desired species.

First off I will say this trip is NOT for inexperienced anglers.  We fished a very difficult spot with many snags. ...
