Haleiwa, Oahu. Hawaii Fishing Charters
Charter Fishing Hawaii
A special breed of angler flocks to this nook of the world, where fishing lore
is born. Hawaii sport fishing is home to legendary tales of hour-long fights,
reel-spooling runs, and an angry marlin majestically soaring above the water to
shake off a lure. This is Hawaii fishing, reel peeling, line screaming, pin you to
the gunwale action.

Marlin Fishing Hawaii
Hawaii Marlin fishing is a team sport. Blue Marlin are at the top of the ocean's food chain,
and in Oahu Hawaii, they fear nothing. Selecting an experienced fishing crew is crucial. If you are fishing
in Oahu, Hawaii and want to land a big Blue Marlin, you need the experienced well-seasoned
crew of the Hawaii fishing charter, Kuuloa Kai.
Skipjack Tuna abound in the waters off Haleiwa, Hawaii because the sea mounts attract
and hold them. They aren't alone: Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, and Sailfish all love
to feast on Skipjack Tuna. The waters are teeming with the hunters and their prey.
When the Billfish schools arrive in Hawaiian waters to fatten up during their pelagic
migrations, Oahu big game sport fishing is pole-busting.
Deep Sea Fishing Oahu, Blue Water Hawaii Fishing
Pelagic game fish, such as Blue Marlin (Au), Wahoo (ono), Dolphin Fish (Mahimahi) Yellowfin Tuna (Ahi)
and Skipjack Tuna (Aku)
tend to prefer deep blue water, ranging from the surface to about 1,000
fathoms. Hence the term Blue Water Fishing. The rule of thumb is the deeper the water the bigger
the fish. Yet, monster fish have been caught just out side the harbor in Oahu Hawaii, so its just a rule of
thumb. You never know when or where a big fish will strike. The Kuuloa Kai Hawaii fishing team is prepared to
hook up and boat a big fish at all times.

Deep Sea Fishing Waikiki, Deep Sea Fishing Honolulu
Oahu Hawaii deep sea fishing
centers around floaters and Hawaii Fish Aggregation Devices (FAD). "Floaters",
the term fishermen call flotsam, act as nurseries for many pelagic species.
Where there is food you will find big predators. Hawaii FADs act as virtual floaters creating
this food chain. Deep sea fishing Hawaii concentrates around FADs in Oahu. Due to heavy shipping
traffic, FADs are not positioned as densely on the Honolulu side of the island of Oahu.
Deep sea fishing Honolulu means long travel times. The North Shore has access to 4 Hawaii FADS.
The beauty of the windward side is that
we get floaters blown to us first and have several Oahu FADs to choose from. Another rule of thumb:
the choppier the water the better the bite. This makes Haleiwa the ideal
fishing venue. You fish where the fish are. And on Oahu, Haleiwa is the hottest fishing venu.
June 2002. Captain Rusty with 131 lbs. Yellowfin Tuna, Hanapa'a Jackpot Fishing Tournament.
Yellowfin Tuna Fishing Hawaii
Oahu, Hawaii's world-famous North Shore may be a surfer's paradise. But its best-kept secret
is that it is also one of Hawaii's hottest big game fishing locations. Massive schools
of big Yellowfin Tuna visit Haleiwa, Hawaii's coast every year. Because of this annual migration,
it is home to Haleiwa, Hawaii's North Shore Hanapa'a Jackpot Fishing Tournament.
Of course, Hawaii is famous for Ahi, the Yellowfin Tuna. Hooking one of these is blue water
big game fishing at its best. Yellowfin Tuna, pound for pound, are some of the hardest
fighters ever built. Just imagine, the Hawaiian State record was 356 pounds of muscle.
Indeed, Yellowfin Tuna are true heavy weights bursting with brute strength. They are a tough
fighting fish with a fast recovery rate. They will mix deep dives with long, fast runs to
test both angler and tackle. This is Hawaii fishing at its best.

Close to the top of the ocean's food chain are Mahimahi, also known as Dolphin Fish and
Ono, called Wahoo elsewhere. These predators are great fun to catch. When Haleiwa, Hawaii's
Mahimahi season is in full swing, multiple hookups are common. Hawaii fishing is about pure
adrenaline pumping action.

Hawaii Deep Sea Fishing with Light Tackle
Let's not forget those plentiful Skipjack Tuna, called Aku in Hawaii. Although they are the feeders for all the
big game fish, catching 5 to 20 pounders on light tackle is a kick in the pants. These babies
fight like torpedos.
