We often get asked, “Can you really catch a blue marlin on an afternoon 4-hour fishing charter?” The answer is yes, and it actually happens a lot more frequently than you might guess. Cori Meltzer and his family joined us on a 4-hour afternoon fishing charter and Captain Brett put him on a very nice Blue Marlin estimated at 450 pounds trolling just a few minutes right outside the harbor entrance.

One of the best things about fishing in Kona is the proximity to the very deep water found just a mile or two from the slip. Kona is one of the few places in the world where Blue Marlin are caught year-round, and one of just a few locales that offer fishing so close to shore, blue marlin are caught just a few minutes after leaving the slip.

That was the case today on an afternoon 4-hour fishing charter, proving once again why Kona is one of the best destinations in the world for blue marlin fishing.
