June 2015 Fishing Blue Marlin Report

Kona Fishing Report
Published on Jun 27, 2015

June 27, 2015 The Fishing in Kona remained really good this past week, and as we head into next week with the Full Moon on Thursday and a good tide schedule all week, expect the consistent action we have seen the past month to remain the same or even get better.  It’s prime time in Kona Hawaii and the high season for Blue Marlin and Tuna will continue through the month of September.  The past week produced multiple hookups for a lot of boats.  Yesterday (Friday June 26th) we tagged and released two blue marlin on a 3/4 day charter.  One fish went about 100 pounds and the second went about 200 pounds.  The boats that have been on full day charters lately have been able to run farther and have also seen the best catches.  On Thursday, another boat fishing in the same area got 9 bites and caught 3 blue marlin and another boat got 8 bites and caught 3 blue marlin.  There are a lot of small blue marlin holding in the area, but still good numbers of big females mixed in.  Last week we tagged one over 500 pounds.  In addition to the great blue marlin fishing in Kona, there are still a good number of tunas hanging around.  Most of the fish are in the 100-200 pound range and last week we had a double header on two really nice Ahi (Yellowfin tuna).

Be sure and book your fishing charters soon.  We are moving into the busiest time of the year and the best days will fill up fast.  There are also a lot of fishing tournaments in Kona over the next 60 days and many of the best boats will be booked for these events.  Get our best rates on a Kona Fishing Charter by booking right on our website.  Just check the calendar below for our available dates.

    Kona Fishing Report August 11, 2021 – Nice Ono on an Afternoon Fishing Charter

    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.
