What anglers said about Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) Fishing in Kauai

Bring rain gear, it rained the entire trip. Not like in the North East were it’s cold but a light rain jacket would have been great.

This was our first time in December as well. Reach out to your captain prior to departure to see what the swell and Temps might be so you know what to wear. Shorts were appropriate. Wear flip flops so you can easily remove prior to entering the cabin.

We had a great day and caught a bunch of fish. Please note that we have had trips without catching anything, it is that way sometimes. You will enjoy this crew and this boat regardless

The experience of being on the ocean was worth the price of admission. It’s fishing, not catching, so don’t expect nonstop action. The captain put us on some small yellowfin at the start, so we all had fish to eat. We boated a 20 pound yellowfin and lost a nice mahi-mahi right at the boat. I did a trip at the Big Island a few years ago and had a similar experience in terms of fish at the boat. Ocean was bumpy but probably normal. Not an issue for me.

Try and time your trip with good weather (low winds and swells). We had great weather and it added to our experience.

As would all fishing trips, you never know what you might catch, or not catch, keep that in mind first.

There is a great bite but small fish. Where there’s small fish there’s big fish tho! Capt said fishing is very hit or miss right now, so you catch what you can and hope for the big one! Coming back for my 100 lb’er

I would recommend sun glasses we forgot ours. And a cooler with ice to bring any meat back home. Unless you never get motion sickness the 4 hour trip is perfect. Other wise takes 8 hour trip.

Days can be cool to start and hot at the end, bring a jacket and sunscreen at the same time. Drink lots of water!

I came in late November, so fishing was slowing down. I expected that, but it was actually a great day to go fishing and we caught Mahi-Mahi and Tuna. Great place to go and not crowded.

If the idea is to catch fish, there are definitely fish out there. The family that was out there on Captain Harry's boat before us caught four nice size tunas, we caught one. For us on our trip, the weather was great, the waves were not too high, no one got sea sick, and it was a great way to spend four hours.
