What you'll do

A few miles north of Kailua-Kona there is a small boat harbor, Honokohau Small Boat Harbor, where we will meet at the boat slip G-15. As we depart the harbor, watching sunrise peak over the mountain, we'll pass the 'green can' where we may see some dolphin or tiger sharks that frequent the area. Motoring out to sea we'll learn about the different tackles and techniques used for catching sport fish and get to fishing! While trolling the calm blue waters of Kona we'll talk story about the various signs for fish, enjoy the views of volcanic mountains, and feel the beautiful Hawaiian weather. We'll navigate to a local ledge or fad and gear up with some light tackle to catch some bait and learn how to use that bait to catch the big ones! When we get back to the harbor we are more than happy to cut some of the days catch for you to prepare where you stay and, if you don't have a place to cook yourself, you're more than welcome to come to our family restaurant Pancho and Lefty's where we'll prepare a meal for you.

Jim

Aloha! Over the last 30 years, I've captained and crewed chartered sportfishing trips off the Kona Coast of Hawaii. I love sharing the feelings of reeling in a prize fish from the deep blue. My favorite moment is when the lines begin to whir and I first feel the fish's strength pulling against the rod. I love sharing my passion and knowledge of these waters with people and teaching them how to read the elements to find fish. My most memorable catch was a 1041 pound blue marlin!

Where you'll be

We will depart Honokohau harbor. Just outside the green buoy we start fishing. We fish 2 ways in Kona we troll lures to areas that we know through experience might have some bait. The bait we catch are skipjack and yellowfin tuna. Wich also provide good fun for the kids light tackle fishing. We will be fishing 1-5 miles of shore up and down the Kona coast pending where the bite has been. Also depending on how much time we have.
