Bite Me Sportfishing – Bite Me 3

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, it 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 private restroom with a shower.

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. The crew has a range of Penn International reels for medium to heavy tackle fishing, as well as Shimano TLD Graphite reels for light tackle.  Let them show you how to catch the prized fish of the area – they will even fillet catch at the end of the day so you can have a taste.

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: Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, and Spearfish are also common catches on these trips.

This charter is frequently booked – don’t miss out on securing your spot today. Join Bite Me Sportfishing for your new Hawaiian adventure!
