Does anyone know of a good boat to fish out of Kauai?
My family and I will be there in April.

I am also wondering if there is some shore fishing opportunities?

I had good experience with a Capt. Ron. He has a catamaran now. I don't have contact info on me at work right now, but I'm sure a google search will get you the info. A phone call to Start me Up in Maui may get you a good recommendation, I don't know of any kauai guys that sponsor BD.

I did have a bad experience with a sportfishing broker over there, it involved a bogus charge on a CC. Long time ago, so I don't remember the details well.

Check out Lahela Sportfishing. We fished with them back in July, and had a blast. Capt. Howard is a really great captain, and a lot of fun to be around. We had a 155LB YF & a 195lb YF!

Great boat and crew, one of the best charters I've ever been on.

Thanks for the great information. We are staying on the north side, but it looks like the drive to the southern towns is the ticket. I will give a report when I return.

I will be in Kauai April 12th through April 19th and I'd like to share a charter. I'm pretty flexible with schedule. Any interest?

thanks

Mike

I ended up going out with Ohuna charters out of the Niwiliwi harbor, much less of a drive for me. We had Lance and Daren, both very good captins, working the charter. We went out to one of the FADs and caught 4 nice ahi and 3 aku.
On the way back, hooked a very large marlin that we fought and lost after about a 30 min battle. Very exciting!
The boat is a converted commercial boat. Not your typical layout but very functional. The captains were very good and professional. They worked hard and know their stuff. Hopefully I will head out with again next week.
