Deep Sea Fishing Blue Marlin

Blue Marlin aka Kajiki (Makaira mazara)

Fishing for a Blue Marlin is one of the most exhilarating experiences in Hawaiian waters. At an average weight of 200 lbs., catching a Blue Marlin is a prize among many deep sea anglers. It can be quite a challenge to reel one in and dangerous if not handled properly, but the experience alone is often an extraordinary story and adventure! Blue Marlin can be served a variety of ways, especially because the fish is so big, but smoked marlin is a local favorite!

Blue Marlin can range from 100 to over 1000 lbs.! Like many of the sport fish in Hawaiian waters, there are peak seasons, but Blue Marlin is basically available all year round. In Hawaii, Blue Marlin may also be referred to as Kajiki, the Japanese name for the Blue Marlin.

Hawaii’s record for the largest Blue Marlin is 1,805 lbs. set by Gail Choy-Kaleiki on June 10, 1970 in Wai’anae.
