My wife & I were in Hawaii a couple of years ago visiting my one son who was stationed there while in the Navy, but I didn't do any fishing. I found out afterwards that there was a fly shop in Honolulu. You might check with them.

Nervous Water Fly Fishers - Fly Fishing Shop & Guide Service in Hawaii

They have a pretty cool fly page on that site!

There is a super bonefish guide in the islands who catches really big bones in deep water conditions on flys. You can google him up under Hawaiin bonefish guides.

It depends on where in Hawaii you are going. It also depends on if you are going to use a boat or not. The later would be a charter thing and they are not as cheap as when I lived there. I was stationed in Pearl Harbor in the Navy for the best part of 7 years (a good deal of that was at sea). My first Submarine had it's office on Ford Island. I fished the heck out of Pearl Harbor. There are Pacific Tarpon (Megalops cyprinoides), Bonefish, Baracuda, a bunch of different Jacks. I've caught sharks like little Hammerheads, Blacktip Reef Sharks. It's a fun place. If you get off shore there are Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Ono, Marlin. Let me know where you are going and I'll try and help.

i second the pacific tarpon. The honolulu fly shop page talkedd about hawaiian rainbow trout. that sounds great but my main goal is to catch a bonefish.

I'm not sure how close to Ford Island the Navy will let you get, but the Sea Plane ramp end has both Bonefish and Pacific Tarpon. I would assume there are spots around Pearl Harbor that do as well. I loved fishing Ford Island. I'll Google Earth Pearl Harbor and see where you can get at the water without enlisting.

By the way the biggest Tarpon I ever caught there was about 36 inches or so. They are a fun fun fish. Pacific Tarpon don't get as big as the Atlantic version, but I wouldn't hold that against them.

Robert, you better look into getting some bigger tackle now too as well, some of those saltwater fish will put a hurting on your bass gear.
