Kona is famous for calm water and big fish, five minutes out of the harbor it's a thousand feet deep. Marlin fishing may not be for everybody, we can target in on Ono (Wahoo), Mahi-Mahi (Dolphin Fish), and Ahi (Yellowfin Tuna) May thru September. Whether you're a complete novice or a seasoned pro we invite you to take a trip aboard the Illusions for a day of fishing that you will remember for a lifetime.
