Spearfishing in Hawaii

Spearfishing is one of the most exciting things you can do in a place already famous for heart-thumping angling action. Nothing beats the thrill of getting up close with your target fish. Be it a reef or bluewater expedition, the Hawaiian archipelago has a hotspot for every spearo. And if you aren't sure where to begin, you can always team up with Hawaii's spearfishing charters for the local tips and tricks.

From colorful reef residents to deep sea royals, spearfishing in Hawaii won't disappoint. Moving gradually from the shore towards the open ocean, you can cross paths with Goatfish, Triggerfish, Snappers, Groupers, Trevally, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and many more. If you want to have fun and help the Hawaiian ecosystem at the same time, go for invasive species like Roi and Toau.

Thanks to the warm temperatures, you won't need a thick wetsuit. Apart from the outfit, you'll want to gear up with a mask, snorkel, fins, speargun, knife, and dive flag. The last item on the list is a must. A dive flag indicates your whereabouts and ensures safe diving or swimming conditions for everyone in your proximity. If you're spearfishing with a certified guide, they'll have you covered with the equipment and safety measures.

Out of all Hawaii’s islands, Oahu, Kauai, Maui, and the Big Island are the most popular spearfishing destinations. You can either explore the deep blue opportunities by boat or enjoy your spearfishing journey closer to the shore. A full day trip is ideal if you're heading offshore, whereas 6-hour trips are perfect for reef hunting.

You don't need to purchase a special permit to spearfish in Hawaii. There are, however, quite specific regulations regarding the areas where you can fish and the species you're allowed to target. While most species are up for grabs, pay attention to their bag and size restrictions, too. Make sure you're familiar with the latest laws before going out.

What anglers said about Spearfishing in Hawaii

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.

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.

Bring sunblock! We did not and we definitely felt it the next day. Take pictures! It’s an experience you’ll want to look back on. And be patient! It’s still fishing. You never know when the big one is going to hit.

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