Whether you’re a trophy-winning angler or you’ve never fished a day in your life, Hawaii fishing has the equipment and conditions you want for the perfect vacation experience. These islands have a broad range of different settings, depths, and species to enjoy, all nestled within spectacular scenery. In fact, the fiftieth state has been the location of many record breaking catches.
Feel welcome to take part in Hawaii fishing whenever you want, whether just for fun, or to take part in one of the numerous tournaments as a competitor. Families and individuals, alike, are all encouraged to spend at least a bit of their time on the Big Island taking part in the sport.
Of course, as with any sport, Hawaii fishing comes with some regulations. For example, there are some seasonal and equipment restrictions as well as license and permit rules and regulated areas.
If you’re a visitor, you may wish to take your first trip out on a charter boat with a company that supplies an expert guide and skipper so that you can have all of your questions answered and become familiar with what is allowable in the state. There are many different companies that provide this service, so it shouldn’t be difficult for you to arrange.
Many families prefer the charter boat experience because of the added learning that they provide as well as the other benefits that are included, such as equipment (including the rod and tackle, as well as squid bait), refreshments (such as water or juice), or even a barbeque that can be used to cook what was caught. Many family Hawaii fishing highlights include eating the manpachi, snapper, akule, and bonefish they brought in themselves. If you travel during the winter months, you might even be able to watch the humpback whales that spend November through May in the area.
Bass Hawaii fishing is exceptionally popular, including several types of species such as the Peacock Bass, Largemouth Bass, and the Smallmouth Bass. Peacock Bass is a very challenging fish to catch, and you’ll need to use a special stealth boat to find it in its shallow water home.
You’ll also be able to try deep sea Hawaii fishing trips, which are available only a short distance from the coast. There, you could catch many kinds of tuna, dorado, billfish, wahoo, spearfish, grouper, snapper, and a number of other big game bottom fish.
