Hawaii Fishing Report

See what’s biting, check the Hawaii fishing report.  Here in Hawaii we target four main species: Marlin (Blues, Striped, Black, and Spearfish), Tunas (Yellowfin also known as Ahi, Bigeye and Skipjack also known as Aku), Mahimahi (also known as Dolphinfish or Dorado), and Ono (also known as Wahoo).

All species of fish we target can be caught all year long because our water temperature remains 72-80 degrees all year long (cooler in the winter, warmer in the summer).  Hawaii remains as the only fishery in the world where a Marlin in excess of 1000 pounds has been caught in every calendar month of the year.

Generally speaking, summer months produce more Yellowfin, Skipjack, Ono, and Blue Marlin. Winter months produce more Striped Marlin and Bigeye tuna, and spring and fall months produce more Mahimahi.

Bottom line is we literally have all of our fish here to some degree 365 days a year, and therefore, Hawaii is a great place to fish for Marlin and large tuna all year long.  We have hot times and cold times for everything, but that is more a result of ocean currents and availability of baitfish coming through on a warm or cold eddie than anything to do with the calendar.

Here’s what’s been happening recently in Hawaii:

April 2017

This time of year in Hawaii fishing is usually good for Mahi Mahi, Striped Marlin and Spearfish which we have been seeing in the 25 – 150 lb range.  We should continue to see Mahi Mahi and Striped Marlin in good numbers throughout April.  Blue Marlin have been caught and released in the 115-300lb range so far this month.  Several nice large Blues have also been weighed in with several of the largest we know of so far this year caught the first week of April weighing in at 600, 608 and 622 .  The largest Blue Marlin we are aware of for 2017 was caught early April weighing in at 925 lbs, which beats the previous best of 771lb caught in Kona on January 28th.  Blue Marlin catches usually peak in the summer months and they seem to be getting better into spring right now so there’s always a shot at a the big blues. Boats are also still reporting some Ahi in the 100 plus lb range, but not too many Ahi have been boated lately.  Ahi are usually around more in the summer months.  We’ve also had quite a few spearfish caught in the 30 to 40lb range. Spearfish are like a skinny marlin.  So there is a variety of fish being caught right now.  For the bass fishing on Kauai, guide Tom has reported some good sized lagremouth bass recently in the 6lb range as well as smallmouth bass, freshwater papio and barracuda.  The Peacock Bass bite best during the late spring and summer months so the Peacock bite is still slow now, but should be picking up hopefully later this month.  The other bass species are still biting so still a good shot at catching.  It’s still warmer in Hawaii now than on the mainland and no tornadoes or thunderstorms, so it’s a great time to go fishing.
