Go Get 'Em Sportfishing
One of our top picks in Kailua. Go Get ‘Em Sportfishing invites you on the ultimate deep sea fishing adventure in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. This tropical paradise is located on the Big Island and used to be the capital city of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi, until the capital moved to Lāhainā, then, to Honolulu. It is also the place where King Kamehameha I spent his final years and where the royal Hawaiian family used to holiday. If it’s good enough for royalty…
Kailua-Kona has, as you would expect in a tropical paradise, a tropical climate. The warm temperatures allow local charter operators to be on the water daily and catch fish.

We went on a 4 hr afternoon trip. Bite was off in the morning and no fish were caught. Captain Jim went to a different area than the rest of the fleet and we hooked an Ono. Then,we hooked up a huge Marlin but lost it. Amazing day.

My bad for not requesting a smoke-free boat. Zack, the deck hand was virtuous & knew what he was doing aboard the boat. Captain Fish smoked & trolled for 4 hrs with not a single nibble to be found, but according to fellow anglers on the boat, he seemed to be a bit grumpy. Maybe it was due to the gouge above his ankle he may have endured before we boarded.
It just seemed disappointing to troll that long and not even go for alternative fish. At least the weather gods were in our favor. For the price plus big tip;
