Frequently Asked Questions
What is included with my Hawaii fishing charter?
Full or half day fishing charters include all bait, tackle and ice. The captain and crew will provide everything needed to catch fish.
How many people can go on the fishing charter?
Our charter boat is licensed to take up to a maximum of six chartered passengers plus the captain and crew.
What time does the boat leave?
Typically on a full day Hawaii fishing charter we leave at 7:00 a.m. and on a half-day fishing charter we leave at 7:30 a.m. However, we can make special arrangements in advance to accommodate your schedule. Please check with the captain 48 hours prior to the day of your Kona fishing charter.
What do I need to bring for the fishing charter?
All you need to supply is your own food and beverages while on board, your own sunscreen and sunglasses and any sea sick medications if you feel you may need it. We have plenty of cold storage and ice chests to store your food and drinks.
Is there a bathroom on the boat?
Yes. We have a comfortable and clean bathroom on the boat.
Can I keep the fish I catch?
Yes. However, we operate a conservation minded sportfishing charter service and promote tag and release sportfishing. Although we encourage our clients to tag and release blue marlin and other billfish species, you make the final decision to harvest or tag and release your catch.
Can I take my fish home with me?
Yes. We can make arrangements for you to have your fish processed and stored for the balance of your trip and then shipped to your final destination or packaged for you to take home on your return flight. We can also arrange for your fish to be processed if you would like to have it prepared at your home or condominium or by a local restaurant during your stay in Hawaii.
What if I want to have my fish mounted?
Most saltwater species of fish, including blue marlin, are not mounted using the skin of the fish. The mounts are made of a fiberglass replica mold and the size is determined by measurements taken from the fish. Your fish may be mounted by either taking measurements of the fish at the time of the catch, so that you may tag and release your catch, or by taking the measurements on the dock. We can refer you to several quality taxidermists who can then create your mount. Be sure and let the captain know of your intentions in advance of catching your fish so he can take the appropriate actions to tag and release any blue marlin or other billfish.
What is the best time of the year to book my Hawaii Fishing Charter in Kona?
The fishing in Kona Hawaii is good year round, but the summer months of June, July, August and September are generally considered the peak time for blue marlin fishing in Kona. The Winter months from October, November, December, January and February can be an excellent time to fish for Striped marlin, and Mahi Mahi. The spring months of March, April, May and June are generally considered to be the best months to fish for Shortbilled Spearfish and Ono or more commonly know as Wahoo.
