Lahela Sportfishing

2494 Niumalu Road
Lihue HI, United States

Kauai, Hawaii, is one of the best places in the world for deep sea fishing, and Lahela Sport Fishing gives you the opportunity to experience this aboard a USCG inspected vessel that is licensed to carry up to 14 passengers.

Lahela is a 34 ft Radon sport fishing vessel that is thoroughly inspected every year to make sure it, and all its safety gear, is in the best working order. Every other year, the boat gets a thorough overhaul, as it is taken out of the water for a complete inspection. With a crew that is fully trained in first aid and emergency procedures, this boat is one of the safest vessels out there for a thrilling big game fishing adventure.

But it’s not just about the safety precautions: Lahula is also fully equipped for a top of the range professional sport fishing experience. With Shimano Tiagra reels and Z-Lures custom built rods making up the tackle selection, and trolling tackle at 30, 50, 80, and 130 weight, as well as ultra light and medium lightweight spinning tackle, you will be well equipped to tackle a monster. And whether you prefer to fish stand up or with a fighting chair, your needs will be catered for, with a Release Marine Tuna series unlimited class-rated Marlin chair and complete sets of stand up equipment ranging from 12 lb to 50 lb on board. This puts you in the perfect position to experience the thrill of catching large Ahi (Yellowfin) Tuna, Ono (Wahoo), Mahi Mahi (Dorado), Skipjack Tuna or, every sport fisherman’s dream, the giant Pacific Blue Marlin.

I was born and raised on Kaua’i. My family goes back many generations. My grandfather was a fisherman. My father had a charter boat in the seventies and early 80’s. Fishing is in my blood - it’s what I do for fun and a living.
