Honolulu is often described as the “racing pulse” of Hawaii, and an adventure aboard Five Star Sportfishing Hawaii more than helps the city live up to this reputation. Jump aboard – it’s time to get those pulses racing!
It’s safe to say that a love for angling inhabits every part of the Five Star Sportfishing Hawaii owner - Capt. John’s life. He’s been fishing as a hobby for as long as he can remember, was part of the Marine Corps for over 27 years, and got his first captain’s license in 2005. In 2018, he decided to relocate to Hawaii and start running charters here. Now, he’s running his charter business together with his Capt. Rubin and thinks Hawaii is one of the best places in the world to chase Marlin and Mahi Mahi and loves introducing guests to these waters.
You’ll be casting off on board a 38’ Bertram offshore sport fishing vessel. She’s capable of accommodating up to 6 guests, and you’ll be able to troll 6 lines in the water once. You’ll have to take it in turns when it comes to the fighting chair – your captain will draw straws to see who should go first! The vessel is also decked out with top-quality navigational and safety gear, so you’ll head to the hotspots in plenty of comfort and security.
No matter your skill level or how long you choose to spend on the water, you’ll have the chance to battle big game fish. Once you leave the harbor, it only takes around 10 minutes or so before Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Tuna, and other hard-fighters start to appear. Shorter trips are great options for newbies, whereas longer trips allow you to head up to 40 miles offshore. This means you’ll be facing off against gigantic fish!
Your captain will provide fishing gear, your fishing license, and live, dead, or artificial bait. Keeping your catch depends on how many fish you hook, but generally, you’ll be able to keep around 50 pounds of meat. Come cast off with Five Star Sportfishing Hawaii for an unforgettable adventure
