Set out to new fishing adventures on the prolific Hawaii waters with Kona Cowboy Sportfishing at the helm! Captain Shawn Slattery runs his charters from the Big Island of Hawaii, the Blue Marlin capital of the world, where the ocean is deep and game fish are abundant.
Whether you’re a novice or pro, you’re going to have a memorable time with this friendly and experienced crew that works very hard to put you on the fish. Whether it’s dinner you’re after, or a trophy Blue Marlin, Capt. Shawn will make it happen.
Hawaii is known for its superb fishing opportunities – the area is the playground of Blue and Striped Marlin, Tuna, as well as Mahi Mahi and Wahoo. Not only do these beautiful fish come in impressive sizes, but they’re also quite close to the shore, and you won’t have to go more than 5 miles offshore to find them.
This charter also specializes in family fishing, ensuring even the youngest anglers have a blast and catch something awesome. Kids of all ages are welcome to join the trip.
Capt. Shawn knows all the best fishing holes and he’s got just the boat to take you to them. His 40’ Bertram is a fishing machine, with plenty of room to accommodate up to 6 people. On board, you’ll have a flybridge to spot schools of fish from afar and a fighting chair to help you battle your massive catch.
With a live bait well, tuna tubes, and outriggers, you’ll have everything you need for a productive fishing day. There’s also ample seating room, a private toilet, and a kitchen on the boat.
Not only will the crew take you to the best action, but they’ll also clean and fillet your catch at the end of the day. There will also be a professional photographer on board and he’ll make sure you have amazing photos to take home. All you need to think about are drinks, snacks, and food.
Kona Cowboy Sportfishing will get you hooked on fantastic Hawaiian fishing and chances are, you’ll always come back for more!
