Fishing Maui Style
Our most universal style of fishing in Hawaii is trolling with lures at 8 to 10 mph. Using this technique you can cover a very large area. The lures are on the surface and splash, dive, and create quite a lot of commotion behind the boat. All of our game fish swim in excess of 30 mph. and will hit the same lures so there is no particular lure for just Marlin or Mahi Mahi. Strikes doing this type of fishing are very exciting as even a small fish can pull quite a bit of line off a reel in a hurry. A large Marlin strike can be unbelievable as they can pull 400 to 600 yards of line in a matter of seconds.
In contrast to lure fishing we also troll using live and rigged bait such as mackerel, small tuna, or squid. This type of fishing is done in a particular area such as a sea mount, fish aggregation device (FAD), or drop off, as you can only run up to three lines and have to move very slowly.
Marlin Fishing in Hawaii
One moment you're just relaxing and enjoying the peaceful beauty of the Pacific Ocean, lazily listening to the conversation of your companions and the lulling drone of the powerful engines. The next moment, utter pandemonium breaks loose - the high-pitched whine of the line uncoiling from a almost smoking reel, the scramble to strap into the fighting chair, the first glimpse of a silver and blue adversary far behind the boat.
It takes a special type of deep sea charter boat Captain to be consistently successful at marlin fishing in Hawaii. A captain with local knowledge, experience in numerous successful hook-ups and catches possesses these unique fishing skills.
Pacific Blue Marlin are a unique species that possess its own skill and cunning so when you book your Maui fishing charter, you want a Captain that has experience going up against this beast of the deep, a beast some call the ultimate gladiator fish of the sea. Sport fishing in Hawaii is the ultimate in fishing and landing a blue marlin is the ultimate test in fishing, you want a Maui Sport Fishing charter that is up to and able to meet the challenge.
