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 – Feb. wrap-up.

We’re past the middle of our striped marlin season and I had given up on there being a striped marlin run this winter but all of the sudden, some started showing up. That’s a good sign but I’m not getting up my hopes for any kind of a good run this year. I’d sure like to see the stripies prove me wrong on that. Spearfish were the most abundant catch of the month and they will be a common catch on into summer. The blue marlin run did kind of a faucet hot / cold thing this month and the “hot” part really depended on where you were fishing. While the water temperature and currents were very stable this month, the blue marlin bite was anything but stable. There were pockets of marlin abundance and pockets where nothing could be found. The blue marlin “cold” pocket seemed to follow me around wherever I went this month.

There were some mahi mahi around this month even though it’s not season for them. The season for them starts now. One of the big factors on a good mahi mahi season is the FAD (fish aggregation devise) program. That’s where the majority of mahi can be found. Any floating debris will hold them but the FAD’s are in a known location, or at least they should be. Kona has been missing two of its best FAD’s for over a year now. They just got replaced. OT buoy and F buoy. F buoy has always been my favorite buoy to fish not just for mahi mahi but also for the smaller ahi and bigeye tuna. I was so happy to find out that F was replaced that I went looking for it but I couldn’t find it. With favorable sea conditions I should have easily spotted it even though it has a few mile swing depending on the current speed and direction. I went out to the area again the next day and I wasn’t the only one looking for it. The people who replaced it must have done something wrong because it broke off. It was only in place for a little over a week. Anchored in 10,000 feet of water and over 13,000 feet of rope under it, I would imagine there’s a lot of rope splicing done, shackles, chain and with all those connections, something went wrong, somebody screwed up. Bummer!

There were some 100+ lb. ahi caught this month and some big ono too but it’s not season for either so it’s a total “luck” kind of a bite.

High winds kept me off of the bottom fishing grounds a lot this month but when I was able to do some bottom drops, I did OK. Not great, just OK. Being forced to go South pretty much takes bottom fishing off of the table. There are some places to drop but they are far apart from each other and never as good as the North fishing grounds. The North fishing grounds are also my favorite place to go for top water trolling. January and February are our windy, stormy, rough water months so I’m glad March is here. Also, March is when the humpback whales really start putting on the show with tail slaps, fluke flaps and breaching. Usually right next to me while I’m bottom fishing.

See ‘ya on the water soon ,
