Bite Me Sportfishing - Bite Me 1
Bite Me Sportfishing wants you to experience Hawaii Sportfishing as it should be. Join them aboard their original boat, the Bite Me 1, and see why it’s in these waters that records have been made. This is one of the best 40 footers in Kona and is the perfect base for a medium-sized group or family.
Bite Me 1 is a 40’ Uniflite boat that features a pair of new 450 HP Caterpillar engines that drive it up to a top speed of 30 knots. Relax in comfort in between bites inside the covered cabin, or scan the surrounding seas aboard the shaded flybridge. With a clean bathroom on board, this is also a boat you will be proud to bring your family aboard!
Your trip will start at the Honokohau Harbor, a bustling marina located on the West of Kailua Kona. This is just a few minutes boat ride from the world-famous ‘Grander alley,’ a place where records have been made and lines have been broken thanks to Hawaii’s famously enormous fishery.
With local species including Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, and Spearfish, this is without a doubt one of the best sport fisheries on the planet. Bite Me Sportfishing’s crew has been fishing these waters for many years and will not only make sure you catch fish, they will make sure you enjoy it, too.
Your main fishing technique will be trolling with artificial lures, a technique that has been honed in these very waters. You will be fishing with Penn International reels, with two at 50#, two at 80#, and five at 130#. And just in case you would like to try some light tackle fun, Shimano TLD Graphite reels will also be available, as well as custom designed Melton International rods. A full sized Murray Brothers fighting chair and Rupp outriggers complete the picture - this really is sportfishing at its best.
Whether you are a pro or a first-timer, join the team for the day and take a fishing trip to tell your friends about. Could this be your chance to catch a grander?
