6-Hour Bottom-Sports Fishing Combo
MAUI Activities - Strike Zone, a 43' Delta, offers this exclusive 6 hour morning Hawaii bottom/sports fishing combination from Maalaea Harbor, a very convenient location for those staying in South and Central Maui.
A typical morning Maui bottom fishing trip aboard Strike Zone departs promptly at 6:30am from Maalaea Harbor, Maui, Slip #64. We return at 12:30pm. It typically takes about an hour to reach some of the most productive spots; different locations are chosen on any given trip, and are determined by what's been biting recently, as well as current weather conditions.
Frequently caught species of fish include many varieties of snappers, trevallys, wrasses, as well as sea bass and the occassional shark. Bottomfishing anglers are invited to keep their catch. We'll even give you a few tips on how best to prepare it!
On the way to and from your bottom fishing destinations, you will often get to high-speed troll for big game to make the most of you running time. By doing this, you'll have a chance of hooking up to any or all of the classic big game trophy fish such as marlin, yellowfin and skipjack tuna, mahi mahi, and ono. Any bottomfishing anglers who are into experiencing the thrill of big game fishing and the reward of mounting their catch are encouraged to participate at no additional cost.
Morning Bottom/sports Fishing charters take a maximum of 16 bottom fishing (each with own rod and reel) and 6 riders. Lunch and beverages are included.
