People typically think of Marlin fishing off the Kona Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii. However, Oahu is home to some of Hawaii’s best open-ocean (pelagic) fishing grounds with abundant schools of Dolphin Fish (Mahi Mahi), Yellowfin Tuna (Ahi), Wahoo (Ono), Skipjack Tuna (Aku) and, of course, the infamous Pacific Blue Marlin (A’u). Many do not realize that the world’s largest Marlin ever landed on rod and reel was caught off Oahu weighing in at 1,805 lbs. Overall, the Blue Marlin is considered the ultimate star of big game fishing, the biggest and the best, made famous by Hemingway and sought after for decades by sport fisherman all over the world.
The best location for fishing on Oahu is on Oahu’s legendary north shore – known for its world class surfing and its incredible deep sea fishing. The North Shore of Oahu is in the direct path of trade winds and currents from the Northwestern Pacific and is a place where the ocean depths drop quickly into very deep waters. A key factor in making the North Shore the best place to fish include the deep water along with the strong currents that bring new bait and game fish into our offshore waters. The center of North Shore Sportfishing is Haleiwa Harbor in the historic town of Haleiwa, where our boats are docked in the harbor.

Remember, all charter boats and crews are NOT created equal. It’s always best to “KNOW BEFORE YOU GO”. If you are in the area, stop by the harbor, meet the crew and tour our boat. Oahu’s North Shore is the place to fish and Chupu charters is the adventure for you!
