Live Bait Sport Fishing is One Of The Best Charters in Oahu

Live Bait Sport Fishing is ranked as one of the best charter boats in Oahu, Hawaii. Located in the Waianae Boat Harbor on the west side of Oahu in the Hawaiian chain, we provide the opportunity for anglers of all levels, from avid to beginners, to catch the fish of their dreams. We offer deep sea trolling with light to heavy tackles, lures and live bait.

Want to Catch the Huge Fish? You Have Come to Right Place

The island of Oahu has the privilege of being a gathering spot for large pelagic predatory fish. These fish constantly migrate in deep blue ocean water, and when their migration is interrupted by an island, they have a tendency to swim to shallow water to feed. The Waianae coast of Oahu is such a place with a large concentration of fish.

On a Typical Fishing Charter, You May Encounter:

Giant Blue Marlin (A’u B)

For the die-hard marlin fishermen, we run fishing charters that specifically target Blue Marlin with live tuna for bait. However, most of our charters are aimed at all species available.

Wahoo (Ono)

Another frequently caught big game fish caught on the coast, Wahoo tend to congregate on deep-water ledges and around floating debris. When Live Bait locates an Ono school, we will use wire line and downriggers to catch them.

Dorado (Mahi-mahi)

This big game species frequents the western shore of Oahu. Not as large as Ahi and Blue Marlin, Mahi-mahi are ferocious feeders and fun to catch. A large bull male Mahi will weigh in 60 to 70 pounds, and a large female will be 35 to 40 pounds. Mahi travel in harems, with one or two big bulls and a group of females. Live Bait has developed a system using live mackerel (Opelu) that allows us to catch most of the harem.

Giant Yellow Fin Tuna (Ahi)

Ahi school in large numbers along the calm Makaha Coast of Oahu, where the fish occasionally migrate along the coast. Every summer. Large schools of Ahi stop offshore of the Waianae Boat Harbor, sometimes staying the same area for months at a time. While other charter fishing boats are traveling for hours from distant harbors like Haleiwa, Ko Olina, Waikiki, Pearl Harbor or Honolulu to reach the tuna, Live Bait is just minutes away.


We offer deep sea trolling with light to heavy tackles, lures, and live bait as well as jigging.
