The summer months are here, which means it’s prime vacation season for families across North America! If you’re planning on making a trek to Hawaii, you’ll be happy to know that fishing is great at all times of the year, even during the summer!
One of the biggest reasons people enjoy summer charter fishing in Hawaii is that the summer months give people their best opportunity to catch a blue marlin. Serious game fishers dream of catching one of these gigantic fish, and they just so happen to be caught during the summer months more frequently than any other time of year.
The overall quantity of fish caught is slightly lower during the summer months, but that doesn’t mean the fishing isn’t great. Throughout June and early July there are plenty of ono (wahoo) fish biting the bait. Mahi mahi, one of the most common gamefish in Hawaii, are also around during the summer in decent amounts, though not quite to their other seasonal levels.
But for families, one of the best parts about summer fishing in Hawaii is that blueline snappers and gray snappers peak during the summer months. These are great fish for younger children to practice with when they are still learning how to fish. Given the fact that summer is prime family vacation season, this is definitely a benefit to keep in mind!
Other considerations for the summer months
If you are indeed coming to Hawaii this summer and want to plan a day to go charter fishing in Hawaii, here are just a few things to consider:
- Weather: Fortunately, there are not many storms that hit during the summer. However, it can be hot. Make sure you are prepared for very warm weather and bring sunscreen with you. Always stay hydrated, as well, to help avoid dehydration and heat stroke.
- Tourism: Despite the hotter weather, summer is still one of the most popular seasons to visit Hawaii simply because it is the time of year when families are able to travel together. Hawaii is a particularly popular spot for destination weddings. A greater influx of tourists means more demand for charter fishing boats. Therefore, you should make your reservations as early as possible to guarantee you’ll be able to partake in the adventure.
- Other activity: With marlins being at their peak during the summer, there are many big fishing tournaments that come to local areas. This could affect the number of people out on the water, and some locations shut down operations entirely to allow tournaments to take place. Keep this in mind as you decide when you will have your trip.
