Kona (Hawaii’s Big Island)

There are 5 huge mountain masses that protect the coast from the winds.  This keeps the sea conditions calm which makes navigating the waters around Kona much easier. Fishing is very good for a variety of species such as 6 species of billfish, tuna, mahi mahi, ono and several species of shark.  When fishing offshore, you never know what you’re going to catch.  The fishing is always exciting on the Big Island.  There are also a variety of bottom fish to fish for as well.

Kauai

Kauai fishing is considered some of the best among the islands of Hawaii.  The remoteness of the island makes it an excellent spot for big game sport fish.  Kauai is the first major island over thousands of miles of oceans in the north and west pacific basin.  There is very deep water on all sides which also helps make this such a good fishing area.  You can catch a variety of species such as the skipjack and yellowfin tuna, the mahi mahi or dolphin fish, the ono also known as wahoo, the pacific blue marlin and other sport fish and big game fish of the Pacific.
