February 25 2015 Fishing Report

The fishing in Kona this last week has picked up quite a bit.  Earlier in the week, we went 4 for 4 one day and 1 for 3 the next day, catching our charter’s younger son a few nice fish.  His expression in the photos below pretty much says it all.  In addition to a good bite happening on Mahi Mahi’s, the Shortnose Spearfish are still around in very good numbers, as well as reliable numbers of Striped Marlin.  As is typical for January and early February, there always seems to be a few really big Blue marlin caught, and this past week was no exception.  Jim Rizzuto’s 16 year old grandson, fishing on another charter boat, connected with his first Grander and after a brutal 30 minute battle, the fish succommed to the fight and could not be revived.  Read more

February 2015 Fishing Report

Kona Hawaii Fishing Report – February 12, 2015 – The fishing right now is pretty good. Lately we have been seeing and people are catching Mahi Mahi, Spearfish, Striped Marlin and a few Blue Marlin as well. The Shortnose Spearfish is the rarest of all Billfish Species and are sought after by anglers targeting them on light tackle setups.

Most of the Spearfish being caught lately are about 20 to 45 lbs. Kona Hawaii is one of the best places in the world to fish for this species and we have many clients that wait all year for them to show up so they can fly out to catch one to complete their billfish grand slam.

There has also been and few nice yellowfin tunas and a couple of random big bigeye tunas being caught lately. While the fishing remains consistent to relatively good, there have not been as many boats out fishing lately. The weather has been very nice lately, but we do have some windy conditions forecasted for the next few days, but the seas are generally very calm here in Kona due to the protected waters from the mountain and the fact that we fish so close to shore.
