February 2015 Fishing Report

Kona Fishing Report
Published on Feb 12, 2015

Kona Hawaii Fishing Report – February 12, 2015 – The fishing right now is pretty good. Lately we have been seeing and people are catching Mahi Mahi, Spearfish, Striped Marlin and a few Blue Marlin as well. The Shortnose Spearfish is the rarest of all Billfish Species and are sought after by anglers targeting them on light tackle setups.

Most of the Spearfish being caught lately are about 20 to 45 lbs. Kona Hawaii is one of the best places in the world to fish for this species and we have many clients that wait all year for them to show up so they can fly out to catch one to complete their billfish grand slam.

There has also been and few nice yellowfin tunas and a couple of random big bigeye tunas being caught lately. While the fishing remains consistent to relatively good, there have not been as many boats out fishing lately. The weather has been very nice lately, but we do have some windy conditions forecasted for the next few days, but the seas are generally very calm here in Kona due to the protected waters from the mountain and the fact that we fish so close to shore.

As a bonus, this time of year there large pods of whales migrating through the waters just off of the Big Island of Hawaii. We have been seeing good numbers of whales on every charter over the past month.

    Probably one of the best things about fishing in Kona is the fact you can catch any number of species on any given day within a few minutes of leaving the slip. Because of this, even on a 4-hour afternoon fishing charter, it is possible to catch a giant blue marlin or just something delicious to throw on the grill for dinner.
