On the Island of Oahu, the coastal shelf drops off quickly, meaning pelagic big game fish (Marlin, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Ono) cruise close to the coast to feed, making the deep-sea big game sportfishing in Hawaii some of the best in the world.

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. Hawaii Marlin fishing is a team sport. Blue Marlin are at the top of the ocean's food chain, they fear nothing. Selecting an experienced crew is crucial. If you are fishing in Hawaii you need the experienced well-seasoned crew.

The largest blue marlin ever caught (1805 lbs.) was caught off Kewalo basin in Oahu. The three kinds of marlin caught in Hawaii are: * Blue Marlin * Black Marlin * Striped Marlin. Other fish caught are: * Mahi Mahi - Dorado or Dolphin Fish * Ahi -- Yellowfin or Big Eye Tuna * Ono -- Wahoo -- the Hawaiian word for delicious * Spearfish and Sailfish * Aku -- Skipjack Tuna
