trips are more for groups looking to wet their feet in the deepsea fishing sphere. Full-day trips allow for more fish catching and more fun!
For deepsea live bait trips you will start your day by catching live bait in the morning, catching anywhere from 6 - 30 mackerel. Once we've loaded the baitwell, we head offshore looking for ahi schools and flotsam (floating grass lines) where we will find Mahi Mahi. There's nothing better than finding a school loaded with fish when your baitwell is full.
For trolling adventures, you will motor off a short distance off the dock to the deep water and start trolling lures at 7 to 8 knots, you will get to see most of the action on the ocean’s surface. You can expect pops, slashes, and bubbles through the water that entice predator fish to attack. One of the two basic fishing styles in Kona, trolling handmade lures will surely bring more excitement to your trip
