Deep Sea Fishing in Hawaii

The "Aloha State" is famous for its dazzling beauty and angling opportunities. But did you know that deep sea fishing in Hawaii is the ultimate bucket list candidate? Scattered across the Pacific Ocean, this archipelago boasts the most prestigious game fish in the world. To land your giant, pair up with a local. There's no one better than a Hawaii deep sea fishing charter captain to help you seal the deal.

There's no doubt – you'll need a hand to reel in Hawaii’s beasts. Four-digit Marlin and state record Tuna are common offshore residents. Apart from these formidable opponents, deep sea fishing in Hawaii features Wahoo speedsters and Mahi Mahi acrobats, too. As if this isn't impressive enough, the deep blue is home to Sailfish, Swordfish, and other Billfish as well.

You can go after all of Hawaii’s top pelagic predators year-round. To maximize your chances of catching these enviable specimens, align your visit with their peak seasons. Swordfish dominate the first half of the year. Mahi Mahi and Wahoo emerge with spring. However, they're all going strong during summer along with their fellow predators, Yellowfin Tuna and Blue Marlin.

Targeting and battling these majestic creatures is quite an endeavor. So, treat yourself to at least 8 hours out in the open. A full day trip will give you enough time to cover a large area and try different fishing techniques like trolling and bottom fishing.

Casting a line in Hawaii’s offshore waters is easy and you don't even have to buy a fishing license. Finding a perfect fishing spot, on the other hand, is more challenging. Not to worry – Hawaii deep sea fishing charters will come to the rescue. However, you simply can't go wrong if you choose Kailua-Kona, Honolulu, or Lahaina as your starting points.

Trust they will take you out to the right fishing grounds. Can be slow due to weather at times but they will bite.

Know what you want to catch, whether you want to keep any fish and let the captain know ahead of time. We did and were very happy with the level of effort the captain exhibited.

Remember it's fishing. If people caught a monster fish everytime they went out, everyone would be a sport fisherman for a living.

If you have never done it before eat some ginger or take a Dramamine the seas are the seas the rough but not crazy. First word advice. If you’re not used to it don’t drink on the boat I’m talking alcohol that is otherwise have a great time.

Be patient. It's called fishing, not catching, for a reason. Good luck to everyone who goes out.

The fishing could be slow it could be fast you are indeed taking a risk whenever you go but I beleave you have good chances going on this charter. Prepair for big waves and lots of rocking, it will be very difficult to stand on your own without a firm handhold. Be ready to help when called on beacuse it will happen at a moment's notice.

Just get out there! Book ahead of time - they fill up quickly. It is great fishing conditions most days, and any bad weather tends to blow through quickly. I was there 12 days, and could have fished every day with no problems. Bring your own food and drink, but dont get drunk - if you aren't used to the water, you will likely get sick if you are drunk.

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

North Shore fishing is not like mainland fishing and can get a bit rough. Take your Dramamine the night before if you even remotely think you might get sea sick. The upside is there are some mighty big sea creatures in those waters with some really beautiful scenery!!!

Reeling in a marlin is a “bucket list” experience. If you’re looking to take home fish you should look for a boat that is targeting smaller fish. If you want to take your chances to catch the fish of a lifetime and look for Marlin then I highly recommend five star fishing.

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.

Do it! It’s fishing. Not catching! But if you’re somewhat of a fisherman or outdoors person, you’d understand. Sometimes the fish has the better of you and sometimes you have the better of them. The important thing is to pay attention to the crew to see how they are changing up rigs and tactics to put you on fish!
