Default Hawaii Advice

Hi group - I am planning on going to Hawaii in November for my honeymoon and have a day reserved on the itinerary for fishing. Looking to do some sort of offshore fishing. From my research, it doesn't seem like November is the best time to go, so trying to decide what my strategy will be. Has anyone fished in November in Maui or Oahu? Would you recommend paying the $1000+ for a trip even though its off season? I have never been to Hawaii but would love to wet a line while im there.

Thanks for any recommendation!

14 days in your hotel room without leaving it sounds like a perfect honeymoon. Plenty of time to strategize for fishing on the 15th day.

Well assuming all things are back to normal? There's always something to catch mahi or ono maybe a small tuna the marlin are cruising around all year. Or look for a charter that does bottom fishing either way if you don't go your gunna regret it when you see the water and look offshore from your hotel room. Good luck.

November can be dismal but it’s a good time for short-billed spearfish and although very few black marlin are caught in Hawaii November seems to be about the best chance for them. 1,000 fathoms is just a few miles from shore so there’s always some fish to be had.

Nobody really knows at this point where we’ll be with social distancing by then so there’s a chance the “large gathering” venues may not be available? I would think a day on the water fishing would be a good option.

Thanks group! Yes this is assuming that the world is somewhat normal and we are able to travel and live a semi normal life.

I was thinking if the sportfishing isnt as good, that i would just do a 4 or 6 hour bottom fishing trip to wet a line and get out on a boat. I've taken the fiance on a few sport fishing trips to try and snag my first marlin and have struck out everytime.

There isn’t any viable bottom fishing in Hawaii from a charter standpoint.
