Hawaii’s corner of the vast Pacific Ocean is a hands-down winner when it comes to catching trophy fish like Pacific Blue Marlin or Striped Marlin. But no matter what you snag on a trip out to sea with a charter fishing company, expect to learn plenty about Hawaiian-style fishing.

Charter fishing boats set out from Lahaina, Ma`alaea Harbor and Mala Wharf daily in pursuit of mahimahi (dolphin fish), ono (wahoo), ahi (yellow-fin tuna), ulua (jack crevalle), kawa kawa (bonito) and the sportfisher’s dream, Pacific Blue Marlin

Many sportfishing boats troll for fish and some companies offer shallow water bottom fishing.
