Go out with an open mind and enjoy the time on the water! It’s beautiful and peaceful even if the catching isn’t going how you’d like!

If you have anyone within your party who may get seasick, be sure to take some sort of dramamine the evening before. Do not wait until you get on the boat. The crew was extremely understanding.

Not a ton of bites the day we went out, but the bite we caught was a big one! Short-billed spearfish :-)

You may want to have some medicine for seasickness. Otherwise take your family and have a good time.

You are booking a fish trip for a trophy fish; not everytime are you going to hook up. I personally have gone on 3 charter trips and this is the only one that ended in success. Its a great way to see the island and hear stories as well.

Find the crew at Fire Hatt. They are super professional and friendly. We brought our four- and six-year-olds. They might have been a bit too young. I think it might be better for, maybe, an 8-year-old or 10-year-old. Sean and Jason were great with our little kids, but the boys struggled a bit with four hours on the boat. But, all in all, it was a great experience for the adults.

Make sure to bring a hat and sunscreen. Pack a small cooler of your favorite drinks and some snacks for the trip. Not every time you will catch something but that’s why they call it fishing not catching.

Book with Kona Dice, great knowledge and they will put you on a fish. The captain and first mate work their tails off and make this the best possible decision.

Manage expectations, it’s not a guarantee. Work for it, it’s fishing, not catching.

Definitely book a 6 or more hour trip, gives you plenty of time and opportunity for a good catch!

Fishing in Kona is not always catching fish, sometimes it is just a long boat ride. The weather is usually great though.

Your best chance is a full day. The longer your hook is in the water, the better your odds :)

If you're looking to land a trophy, Kailua-Kona is the place. But if you're a large group, looking catch a lot of fish this probably not the location.

Beautiful, warm days on the water! Fishing was slower than other months but you’re still chasing fish and enjoying beautiful views. Pick the right crew and any day is memorable.

Patience. You will spend a lot of time trolling around, but when you do hook up, it is pure excitement.

Just catch small ones for kids at least. If you got big ones, you’re lucky.
