There's no point in heading offshore to fish Maui waters if you don't know what you're looking for. Fish travel in schools - now you can get schooled in fish behavior. Click on the names below to get a full description of the species, its range, history and information on how we chase them.

The three different types of marlin that we consistently catch in Hawaii include the Pacific Blue Marlin, the Striped Marlin, and the Pacific Short-nosed Spearfish. Although Sailfish and Black Marlin are caught in Hawaiian waters, it is sometimes rare.
