Hawaii Fishing Reports, Detailed Fishing Reports

Please enjoy our fishing reports and please post your own report for your state or region. Doesn't matter where you live or what region you fish as we try to display fishing reports for all types and styles of fishing. Fly fishing, surf fishing, wade fishing, to fishing 100 miles offshore in the Gulf Stream off the mid-atlantic coast are just some of the types of fishing reports we display. And that was just the saltwater fishing which is far outnumbered by all the types of freshwater fishing reports we see. We get freshwater reports for bass fishing in Mississippi to mountain stream fishing for trout in Colorado to Salmon fishing in the Great Lakes. Speaking of the Great Lakes, Michigan seems to be very popular for charter boat Captains and their fishing reports.

Some anglers just like to read certain fishing reports from exotic locales and dream about the day they will be able to take a fishing trip to whatever fishing paradise they are thinking about. For instance we have Key West fishing reports that tell us about extreme light tackle fishing and the excitiment of fighting a 100 pound tarpon in 3 feet of water while he sometimes walks on water during his effort to escape the pull of the angler and his rod n reel. Key West provides plenty of fishing action but for some it is not a likely destination so they read the reports and dream about a Key West fishing trip. Who knows? In time maybe those anglers that dream about fishing in a far off paradise will get their wish eventually and instead of their own Hawaii Fishing Reports they will write a report about their tropical island fishing vacation.

Kona Hawaii Fishing Report Ė Jan. wrap-up.

The blue marlin bite has been pretty good so far this winter even though itís not the season for them. Yes I said the same thing in last months report and I will redundantly repeat that itís striped marlin season now but that bite isnít happening. We should have seen more stripes this month than we did in December but they have become even rarer. Itís a good thing the blue marlin are taking up the slack. With two more months to go for the peak of the striped marlin season, I will remain hopeful that they are just off to a late start. The spearfish bite has slowed also but we are just now entering the peak of their season.

Thereís been a few ahi caught in the porpoise schools but with our best FADís still not replaced and the offshore fish farm still not replaced, the winter bigeye and shibi (smaller ahi) catch will be nearly nonexistent. Luckily, while not the delicious quality of the bigeye and shibi, the otaru size (10+ lb.) skipjack tunas have been in abundance outside of the Kona airport. Thatís normally a late summer thing with them. Thereís still a few mahi mahi being caught and even some ono. More ono are being found offshore than nearshore where we would normally expect to find them.

The bottom bite was pretty good this month if I could catch the right bait. If I catch the otaru tuna, I can cut some chunks and send them to the bottom but the small fish tend to gang up on the pieces like a bunch of piranha so that hasnít been working out so well lately. Luckily the frigate mackerel are back and because those baits look more like they might bite back, the little fish tend not to be so aggressive at picking them apart, leaving ample time for the bigger fish like giant trevally, amberjack and sharks to get at them.

Itís a new year and a new ďBig Fish ListĒ has started. Common fish like marlin, spearfish, ahi, mahi mahi and ono get on the list right away but the less common catches take a while to fill. If I wanted to kill a giant trevally just to get on the list it wouldnít take much effort. Same with amberjack and just six days into the new year, I caught a 100+ amberjack that I could have killed to get on the list and it could possibly have been the biggest for the whole year but it came up real healthy so I let it go. A fair amount of the time, the bigger jacks just donít survive coming up from the deep. Deep is a relative term so how deep is deep? I fish 400 to 600 feet down. Yes, thatís DEEP! Iíve been fishing the deep for two decades now and still, every once in a while, I get a surprise. One fish I occasionally catch while dropping bait down or bringing it up is the great barracuda. In all my years of bottom fishing, Iíve never hooked one on the bottom until now. It was a big one too. One of the biggest Iíve ever seen. I had no problem killing that ugly predator and weighing it in. It came to 39 lbs. so yes, I did make the ďBig Fish ListĒ only because itís the first one of the new year to be submitted (even though I caught and released a smaller one earlier this year) but because of the size of this one, itís very likely to stay on top for the rest of the year.

See Ďya on the water soon ,
