Marlin are the prize catch in the deep waters of Oahu but sailfish, tuna, mahi mahi and wahoo are also prominent. These Hawaiian fish are thought to be attracted to shallow or surface objects and a series of buoys have been installed to assist fishermen of which there are several sets surrounding Oahu. Use your bait to catch tuna then try and entice the marlin which will sometimes show some interest at this point. Hawaii is a well known deep water destination offering a range of fishing styles and catch, but Oahu is one of the best places to use as a base for ocean and pelagic fishermen.
