Catching the Big Fish in Hawaii

Heading out to sea for a day of fun and adventure is a great option for your Hawaii vacation. The waters of Hawaii are ripe with big game fish, and reeling one in in an exhilarating feeling that will make a deep sea fishing adventure in Hawaii the best part of your trip. Just imagine winning the battle with a Marlin, or bringing a tuna on board the boat. These mammoth fish grow to impressive sizes in the vast Pacific Ocean, and when you’re out at sea, you’re bound to run into one of these prized catches.

It comes as no surprise that some of the biggest fish ever caught have been reeled in right here in Hawaii. The waters off of Oahu and the Big Island are well-known for the huge fish that they produce and local fishing charters have brought in some of the biggest fish in the world. Battles with giant fish can go on for hours, and when a boat pulls back in with a record setting catch, it is always a celebration. Records are meant to be broke and record setting fish bring about great excitement for everyone around.

Throughout the years, many records have been set by locally owned fishing charters, and at the outset of the day there is no indication that a special day is in store. Just like at the beginning of your day, you might be apart of history, and all you have to do is head out to sea. What a story it will be if you join a fishing charter in Hawaii, and break a record!

Local fishing charters have caught many record setting fish during a day at sea, including:

  • Yellowfin Tuna – 325 lbs
  • Skipjack Tuna  - 40 lbs 8 oz
  • Swordfish – 503 lbs
  • Mahi Mahi – 82 lbs

When you really think about it, know that there are world record fish swimming freely around Hawaii is an incredible thing. These fish help to keep the oceans healthy, and Hawaiians have long relied on the ocean for a sustainable source of food, dating all the way back to the earliest arrivals of Polynesian voyagers. Fishing is a national pastime in Hawaii and a day at sea is an incredible experience, and the chance to be part of something special should not be missed.
