Oahu deep sea fishing, that’s where the anglers come to catch the trophy fish. The biggest fish caught by rod and reel was a blue marlin that weighed 1805 lbs and was caught just off Oahu. Oahu and other Hawaiian islands are home to several “big game” tournaments including the biggest and most popular, The Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament. This tournament lures fishermen from all over the world.
Some of the big fish you will encounter here are three types of marlin: blue, black and striped. It is also possible to hook a “grander”, which means a huge fish weighing at least 1000 lbs. Other top game fish include: ahi (yellow fin tuna), Ono, Mahimahi, and skipjack tuna. All of these can give you a run for your money and an experience you will never forget. The different types of tuna are among the fiercest fighters and require a lot of strength and determination. The striped marlin is an resident of Hawaiian waters, only showing up in the winter months. All the other big-game fish can be found in Hawaiian waters all year-round. Oahu deep sea fishing is sure to be fun and fruitful.
