Kaua‘i Fishing

Kaua’i Fishing? Did someone say FISHING? Ohhhh, yeah. There’s nothing like that heart-pounding rush of a solid fish strike, and boy, does Kaua‘i have some great fishing! From fresh water to ocean, from shoreline to fishing boats, this island has it all. Charter a Kaua’i fishing boat for an exhilarating day at sea catching ‘ono (wahoo), ahi (yellowfin tuna), or mahimahi (dolphinfish), or hook into several varieties of bass and other freshwater fish along the shores of Kaua‘i’s many rivers and reservoirs.

Ocean fishing charters on Kaua‘i are quite numerous; however, we do have some top picks.

For freshwater fishing in Kaua’i, Tom Christy is the guy in the know. An expert bass fishing guide on Kaua‘i since 1982, Tom has fished all 165 reservoirs and nine rivers on Kaua‘i. Tom offers half- and full-day fishing trips complete with gear and beverages; for full-day trips you need to bring your own lunch. Koloa Bass Fishing in Lihue will get you out onto the Waita Reservoir, the largest inland body of water in Hawai‘i, which is on private property and inaccessible to the public. Of course, “inaccessible to the public” also means killer fishing.
