About HI Tide Fishing

About HI Tide Fishing

HI Tide Fly Fishing located on the island of Oahu is a Hawaii Saltwater Fly Fishing guide service targeting Hawaii Bonefish on fly fishing and light tackle spinning gear.

Oahu, Hawaii is world renowned for its breathtaking beaches, amazing surf breaks and beautiful mountain ranges. However, one thing the most isolated island chain on earth is not well known for is saltwater fly fishing and it’s trophy bone fishery. The first thing that comes to mind when fishing in Hawaii is deep sea fishing.

The island of O’ahu, which means the gathering place, is home to some of the largest bonefish or “‘O’io” on earth. We have amazing flats on both the eastern side of the island and the southern side that present the visiting angler opportunities to wade or pole flats in search of these elusive giants. Our bonefish average 5 to 7 pounds consistently, but come prepared for shots at some in the 8 – 10 pound plus range.

Additionally, we do ocassionally have shots at different types of Trevally, including Giant Trevally, or “Ulua;” Blue Trevally, or “Omilu;” and Golden Trevally, or “Pa’o Pa’o.” Unlike other exotic bone fishing destinations, a good day out here means we see 20-50 fish and have excellent shots on about half of them.

Conditions on O’ahu can be challenging like any other saltwater fly fishing destination with strong winds, although we do have many great days with perfect wind and great visiblility. For those willing to accept the challenge the returns can easily yield the bonefish of a lifetime.
