Fishing in Hawaii

This cluster of eight main islands (and hundreds of smaller ones), spread out over 1,500 square miles in the Pacific Ocean is one of those places that almost everyone feels they can visualize. More often than not, it’s a visualization that combines some of the following: dramatic, rainforested mountains leading down to wide open beaches, surfers bobbing offshore and Jack Johnson strumming a guitar beneath a palm tree. Of course, there’s a lot more to it than that – the fishing, for example, is pretty special.
Hawaii has always been known as a superb offshore fishery, but in recent years its reputation as an inshore fly-fishing destination has grown in leaps and bounds. Hawaii’s bonefishing in particular has taken on near-mythical status – not because of the numbers of fish (it can’t compete with the likes of Mexico or the Bahamas on that front), but for the size of them. In short, the bonefish in Hawaii are monstrous. They’re hard to find, hard to catch, but they average 5-9lbs, and you can expect shots at double-digit fish most days. See below for Fishipedia’s recommended Hawaii fishing guides.
