Tournaments

There are several fishing tournaments in Kona Hawaii year round with the majority of the fishing tournaments in the summer months. The entry fees range from $100 to $5,000. In addition, you can also enter in the “daily optional categories.” You do not have to be a professional or a skilled fisherman to enter any of these tournaments. As a matter of fact, the majority of our ‘tournament anglers’ have either fished with us before on a charter or have a trip already booked with us and decided to enter the tournament that is running while they are on vacation in Kona. If this interests you or you think you might want to get in on any of the following tournaments give Captain Chuck a call at (808) 960-5877 for more details.
