We leave the Honokohau Harbor at 6:00 a.m., because the fish get hungry early. Depending on the time of year, we can watch the sun rise. Sometimes, if the water is very calm we might go north. If the wind picks up we will head south where is is always calmer. As we troll we can see whales, birds and the beautiful coast of the island. You will be mesmerized by the shades of turquoise in the water. You will see large green areas on the side of the mountains and large areas of Lava. You can see the waves crashing along the shore. When we get close to a buoy we catch 5 to 10 lb. bait fish. If there is no bait around we troll with lures, custom made for these waters. Read More
