What is the best time of year for fishing the Kona Coast and which types of fish are caught in the various seasons?


Fishing is not seasonal in Kona. Blue Marlin can be found year round in Kona due to higher average ocean temperatures in this part of the Pacific and the town of Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii is considered one of of the best places in the world to fish for Blue Marlin. Due to Kona’s location on the Big Island of Hawaii, extremely deep water is reachable just a few hundred yards from the harbor entrance. This means short runs to productive fishing and typically calm waters due to the proximity of the fishing grounds to the shoreline. While Blue Marlin fishing in Kona is productive year round, the peak seasons for Blue Marlin in fishing Kona is June through September. The types of fish that are caught year round are Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Short billed Spearfish, Yellow-fin tuna (ahi), Wahoo (Ono), and Dorado (Mahimahi).
