There are several guides on the Island. The few trips I took, were with some fishing charters at the Air Force base. Unfortunately, if you don't have access to military installations, you can't go with them. In Hawaii, it is common for the boat captains to keep the catch. Very few will give you a small portion of fish for you to take with you. The few times I went, I paid extra to go top water fishing for Mahi Mahi/dorado/dolphin. The trips are a bit expensive and success is not that high. Think of it as an expensive boat ride, and you won't be disappointed. By the way, I lived there for 3 years and did mostly shore fishing. There isn't a more beautiful place to get skunked at though!

Oh ,they will give you brochures when you get to the airport or downtown Waikiki that advertise bottom fishing trips. It is usually a tourist trap with many Japanese tourist. You will end up forking over quite a bit of money and catch nothing but the unofficial state fish. They apologized to us when they found out we lived there. To me, that meant they knew they were ripping off people. If you need any other info, fell free to message me and I can help with whatever I can!
