Fishing Hawaii

Fishing in Kona Hawaii is one of the best places in the world to go deep sea fishing Kona.  The waters off the Big Island are warm, calm and very deep.  All these variables make Hawaii fishing more productive than almost anywhere.  The deep water ledges off the Kona coast start to drop off immediately.  No running for miles and wasting precious fishing in Kona Hawaii.  Start fishing minutes from the Kona Harbor.  More granders have been caught within five miles of the Kona Harbor than anywhere along the Kona coast.  Capt. Bobby Cherry has been fishing these waters his entire life and knows them like the back of his hand.  Experience is what it takes to fish in Kona Hawaii.  If you are serious about catching Kona fish let an experienced captain show you through all the ledges and drop offs.  It takes many years to learn where to fish and when to fish while sport fishing in Kona.  You don't need a big luxury sport fishing yacht to fish these waters.  A 28 foot charter boat will fish same as a 40 footer.  That's what makes the Cherry Pit II so perfect.  The right boat for the right price.

Fish Policy
I always try to share the fish we catch with my clients.
Mahimahi, Ono and small tuna I'm usually fine with filleting up.  The bigger Tuna and fish worth money will stay with the boat.  I always try to get my clients fish they can enjoy while here on vacation.  I can't afford to give it all away, that's one reason I can offer such a competitive rate,
