Bite Me Sportfishing - Bite Me 3

74-425 Kealakehe Parkway
Kailua-Kona HI, United States

Bite Me Sportfishing is ready to take you on a Hawaii fishing trip you will want to tell your friends about. Longing to get a taste of a place where numerous records have been made? Want to try your hand at catching your very own monster? Hoping to do all this in the presence of a polite, warm, and knowledgeable crew? Look no further.

Bite Me 3 is a glamorous 40’ Egg Harbor boat that is perfect for medium-sized groups of friends or family. A comfortable vessel to spend the day aboard, she features a Kona Open cockpit that has been lovingly decked out with comfortable leather couches. The shady flybridge is perfect for scanning the horizon for huge Marlins, while inside you will find a clean, private restroom that comes complete with a shower. As if that didn’t make you feel enough at home, you will also find a CD stereo with an iPod plugin for your favorite tunes.

Step on the deck, and you will understand why Bite Me Sportfishing has been voted “Best of Hawaii” for many years in a row. You will find a full-sized Murray Brothers fighting chair waiting for you, as well as Rupp tournament-grade outriggers and tuna tubes in case you are fishing with bait.

Your tackle will be rigged and waiting for you, and it won’t disappoint. Bite Me Sportfishing carries a range of Penn International reels for medium to heavy tackle fishing, as well as Shimano TLD Graphite reels for light tackle.

Which brings us on to the fishing. There’s a reason why Kona is famous for its big game fishing, and the Bite Me fleet is located just minutes away from some of the best Marlin grounds out there. But you won’t only be looking for Marlin: Ono, Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, and Spearfish are also common catches on these trips. Let the crew show you how to catch them - they will even fillet your prize catches at the end of the day so the experience will just keep on going.

Fished for 5 1/2 Hours and on our way in we hooked and landed a 90-LB Yellow Tail. They then told us they haven’t caught anything for 27 days straight. Not to mention Andy was complaining most of the trip to my wife how bad the company was treating them. And the boat was a wreck! Very dirty and unorganized!!!

Back to our fish. They immediately asked us if we wanted to purchase a trophy for our fish, and how much of the catch we wanted to keep, we told them 20 Lbs and we planned on donating the balance to the resort where we’re staying. Being they had another trip right after ours, we told them we would come back to retrieve our catch. When we returned, I was filling out the paperwork for our mounts/trophy process we wanted to do. Andy was starting on the filleting price for our fish on a bench! (Gross)! Not a fillet table! Then he took half of our fish and said he donated it to a funeral? Didn’t ask our permission just did it. What a crock of S#%^ they were going to sell it! Plain and simple.

I normally check the reviews on just about everything I do for restaurants to services etc. Once I did. Andy and Thomas’s track record was HORRIBLE!!! Huge mistake on my part! I figured Fish Booker was on top of things like this. However, I’m not blaming them. I’ll take the bullet on this.

I wouldn’t recommend the Bite me 3 boat EVER!!! I don’t know much about the rest of their boats or crews. But this turned into a Nightmare. I hope this helps? You can check trip advisor for a review my wife posted. And I will be doing the same along with my brother in law.

At least we caught a beautiful and delicious fish.

Best regards,

Brian Rowland
