Renegade Fishing Charters - Kona Hawaii

     The Big Island of Hawaii has some of the best fishing in the world. On almost any day of the year a large Pacific Blue Marlin can be caught off the Kona coast.

     Kona is well known for large Blue, Black and Striped Marlin, but also Mahi Mahi, Ono, Ahi, Spearfish, Aku and other fish are caught off the Kona coast.

     Kona is located on the lee side of the Big Island of Hawaii. Two large mountains nearly 14,000 feet high protect Kona from the trade winds making it possible to fish for large fish in very calm ocean waters. The water depth offshore of Kona drops dramatically. At just a few miles offshore you’re at 6000 ft. deep and it keeps getting deeper after that. That's truly deep sea fishing. What this all means is you have world class charter sportfishing in the Hawaiian deep pacific with calm water.

     Kona not only has world class ocean fishing but is one of the world's best vacation destinations. Should you book a charter, your Captain and crew can give you great advise for touring the island.

     Blue Marlin run all year. The large Yellowfin Tuna can be caught on any day of the year but are more plentiful during the summer months. Kona fisherman use a variety of techniques for catching fish. Trolling lures is probably the most popular style in Kona, but live bait is also popular. Kona also has many large species of fish that can be caught off the ledges and bottom such as amberjack or shark.
     When booking your charter ask about what type of fishing you prefer. Some people are just interested in trolling for the large blue Marlin and others are happy to focus on small skipjack tuna or bottomfish near the ledges.
