Whether you’re a novice or an experienced sportfishing enthusiast, you’ll discover that deep sea fishing off Maui, Hawaii is unlike any other sportfishing experience you’ve ever had.
A Maui sportfishing adventure from Lahaina may take you around the islands of Lanai, Molokai, Kahoolawe or Molokini, offering a fishing guest a rare experience afforded only a few of Hawaii’s visitors! On these Maui trips you’ll have a chance to hook up to a variety of Marlin species, Mahi Mahi (dorado), Ahi (tuna), Ono (wahoo) and more.
These trips involve a slight run offshore (30-40min) to get to the deep water where all the game fish you'll target will be caught on the troll. Trolling is when one or more fishing lines, baited with lures or bait fish, are drawn through the water. The fishing rods are placed in rod holders and the lines are set with the lures at varying distances behind the boat held apart by the outriggers to avoid line tangling. Trolling speed varies depending on water and weather conditions. The ideal position of the bait is skimming on the surface of the water to mimic the behavior of an injured or fast-moving fish, this is what attracts the game fish we are targeting.
Everything is provided when you go out with Captain Doug and his crew from top-of-the-line rods and reels, to bait and tackle, to ice cold waters and fishing licenses. All they recommend you bring is your sunscreen (lotion only), non-marking shoes, and any snacks and drinks you'd like to enjoy onboard. Captain Doug and Crew will take care of the rest to ensure you make memories that last a lifetime aboard their boat!
Whether its hard fighting table fare like Mahi Mahi and Ono (Wahoo) or bigger pelagics like Ahi (Yellowfin), or big Marlin! Captain Doug will provide the best advice for what bite is hottest that day, and cautions that it is indeed "Fishing" not "Catching" (especially for big pelagics like Marlin) but it's always up to you which fish you'd like to target!...Read More
As long-time residents of Maui and Kona, feel free to ask Doug for recommendations on other activities, restaurants, hotels and places to see that you might otherwise miss during your stay in the islands.
Make no mistake, Captain Doug and his crew's #1 goal is doing everything they can to help you catch the fish of a lifetime! They are experienced tournament winners, so book with them today and get fishing!
