Our Crew

The Best Fishing Charter is in Waiʻanae, Hawaiʻi

Located in the Waiʻanae Boat Harbor since 1985, Live Bait Sport Fishing has a strategical advantage over the Honolulu fishing charters. This advantage has resulted in Live Bait Sport Fishing being ranked as one of the best fishing charters on Oʻahu for nearly 35 years.

The Waiʻanae Coast is nearer to the prime big game fishing grounds compared to the Waikiki fishing charters. The island of Oʻahu has the privilege of being a gathering spot for large pelagic predatory fish such as Ahi (Tuna), Mahimahi (Dorado), Ono (Wahoo) and the world-renowned trophy catch; the 1,000+ pound Aʻu (Marlin). These fish continually migrate in deep blue ocean water, and when their migration is interrupted by an island, they tend to swim to shallow waters to feed. The Waiʻanae coast of Oʻahu is such a place and drastically increases your chances to encounter a large concentration of big game fish.

Live Bait Sport Fishing combines ancient Hawaiian fishing traditions with modern and innovative fishing techniques.
Join us aboard the Live Bait; we offer full and half-day fishing charters to accommodate your needs.

Fishing Charter Reviews

“On Monday 19 Dec 2016, we charter Capt Shannon and his deck man expert Steve to go out and do some deep sea fishing. Well, we were not disappointed at all the fishing was excellent 11 nice fighting yellowfin tuna. What a day and catch. These guys are commercial fishing so they go after the best fish. Saw a competitor bottom fishing with tourists in the area while we were bringing these boys in. Highly recommend. The seas were a little choppy and rough but the fish cooperated. My hats off to them both. Great boat and equipment. Design for real fishing.” -Greg W
