Bottom Fishing for Snapper etc.

Sport Fishing and Bottom Fishing for 4 hours charter out of Maalaea Harbor, rider prices available! Family-friendly bottom fishing off Maui for Snappers and more.

I’ve been out sport fishing here in Hawaii several times and even participated in a couple of the Wahine (women’s) Fishing Tournaments. We always have fun, especially knowing you have the chance of hooking up to a big Tuna or Marlin!

The best part of a fishing charter that offers bottom fishing, as well as sport fishing, is that you get to not only experience the thrill of the hunt for Big Gamefish, you actually get to handle the pole and put your own line into the water, and reel it back in.

With Sports Fishing, the boat is fishing, then you get to reel the fish in after it’s on the line.

When you go ‘Bottom’ Fishing, you & I are the ones fishing!  And look at the Fish I just caught! Even the guys on the boat (and my sons who are avid fishermen, born and raised on Maui) were impressed with my catch! It’s not that my Fish was so big, it’s that Grey Snapper is really good eating!! Here in Hawaii, we call it a Uku. We also caught ‘plenty’ Blueline Snapper (Ta’ape); most of which went right back in the ocean. We ran into a school of Rainbow Runners! Also very good for eating fish. We caught several other good size fish….unfortunately, I forgot the names…

I have to say, there was a nice lady on board, Val, who had no intention of fishing. Val was going along with her husband for the ride and the Whale Watching, however, she paid for the fishing vs rider price…well as I was fishing & talking to her, she decided to let her husband bait her line and go ahead and fish off the side of the boat with the rest of us.

Val caught the Biggest Fish!  Let me tell you that by the end of the 2 hours we were bottom fishing, she was baiting her own line!

I also liked that the Captain moved our fishing vessel over a couple of different reefs. They have the latest in ‘Fish Finders’… also, not having ever bottom fished here in Hawaii before, the ‘Fishing 101’ class was very helpful. I find things are not as worrisome if I can see it being done and get a chance to try it myself.


Shared Fishing trips are Sport Fishing for about an hour, then Bottom Fish for 2 hours then 1 hour of sport fishing/trolling back to Ma’alaea Harbor. Book a Private Fishing Boat and you can Sport Fish the whole time if you choose. 808-879-6260.
