About Trolling Handmade Lures

By trolling lures at 7 to 8 knots, you will get to see most of the action on the ocean’s surface. You can expect pops, slashes, and bubbles through the water that entice predator fish to attack. One of the two basic fishing styles in Kona, trolling handmade lures will surely bring more excitement to your trip.

What Makes Live Bait Fishing Fun

We start our day by catching live bait in the morning, catching anywhere form 6 - 30 mackerel. Once we've loaded the baitwell, we head offshore looking for ahi schools and flotsome where we will find mahi mahi. There's nothing better than finding a school loaded with fish when your bailwell is full.
