Big Island of Hawaii Fishing Charters
Big Island of Hawaii sport fishing charters are the most well known deep sea fishing charters found in the state of Hawaii.
The "Mecca" for Sportfishing in Hawaii is the Big Island of Hawaii's Kona Coast. The Kona Coast lies immediately next to a huge ocean drop-off which descends thousands of feet to the ocean bottom.
This provides easy access by Hawaii charter fishing boats to some of the world's largest game fish, many of which can be found mounted throughout the stores and restaurants of the small town of Kailua-Kona. Anglers from all over the world have found their way here to participate in one of the most exciting of all forms of fishing - Big Island of Hawaii Sport Fishing.
The thrill of hooking into one of these large Hawaii sport fish (the Pacific Blue Marlin can reach hundreds of pounds in weight) and attempting to bring it on board is something you will never forget. Once you've hooked into your first Hawaii sport fish, you'll be hooked as well! You'll be back time and time again for the thrill of the pursuit and the excitement of the big game fishing in Hawaii.
There is a huge fleet of fishing boats available for charter on the Big Island of Hawaii and many are among the most beautiful I have ever come across. One additional factor you will find very attractive is the fact that the pricing on these Big Island fishing charters is very, very reasonable compared to other islands in the state. I've always found it ironic that some of the best sport fishing in Hawaii and in fact the world, on some of the most beautiful sport fishing boats in the Hawaii, could be found on the Kona Coast of the Big Island at the very lowest prices.
If you have the slightest interest in sport fishing, the Big Island of Hawaii is the place to do it.
Some considerations regarding your Big Island of Hawaii sport fishing charters:
- Private Hawaii sport fishing charters book the whole boat for the exclusive use of you and your group.
- You may choose to hire a "share boat" with a group of people. The maximum is usually 6.
- Hawaii fishing charters are available for various trips lasting 4, 6, or 8 hours.
- Big Island charter fishing trips can leave in the morning or afternoon.
- If you're really serious about Big Island Sportfishing, book a 3/4 (6-hour) or full day (8-hour) trip. This gives your Hawaii fishing charter time to reach the major fishing grounds and spend some time there.
- The "tag and release" option is usually left up to you. Discuss this with the captain at the beginning of your trip.
- Hawaii sport fishing captains and crew are great fishermen, but you'll be pleased to know they won't be making your lunch. Bring your own food and drink.
- All equipment, licenses and ice are provided by the boat.

Big Island of Hawaii Fishing Charters - The very best place for sport fishing in all of Hawaii is off the Kona coast of the Big Island. Not only is the fishing great but the fishing grounds actually begin within a few hundred yards of the harbor. This is probably due to the fact that the Kona Coast of the Big Island actually drops off thousands of feet just off shore making it available to the deep water fish making their way up from the depths. One of the great things about fishing in Kona is that because the fishing is so good there are many boats fishing there, and because there are many boats, the pricing is generally better than is found on other islands.
