Bonefish Fly Fishing Trips

Bonefish Fly Fishing Trips

Capt. Jesse Cheape Hawaii Bonefish Guide

Fly Fishing Bonefish in Oahu Hawaii can be some of the most challenging yet rewarding fly fishing adventure. Our average Bonefish in Hawaii is 5-7 pounds and do see fish exceeding 10 pounds. These bigger fish are generally found in singles or doubles cruising and tailing on the flats. In Hawaii you won't see large schools of Bonefish on the flats like other fly fishing destinations, we do find smaller fish in smaller schools of 5-10 in the 2-4 pound range on the flats. Bonefish flats we fish here Hawaii can be sandy ankle deep water where we find tailing Bonefish to waist deep reef flats where we find cruising bonefish and Trevally. 

What to bring on a Bonefishing Trip in Oahu Hawaii

Hat, good copper polarized lens sunglasses, sunblock, light rain jacket, flats boots, camera, comfortable cool sun protection fishing shirt, snacks and beverages of your choice.

If you would like to bring your own equipment a 9' 8wt saltwater rod with a saltwater safe fly reel with a good drag loaded with 200 yards of 20 pound backing, Tropical Saltwater floating fly line 9' tapered flourocarbon leader 12-16 pounds.

No fishing license is required for Saltwater fishing in Hawaii.

Action Craft 1620 Fly Fisher

Action Craft 1620 Fly Fisher is a 16′ boat and is powered by a Yamaha 90. Action Craft boats are well built and is the perfect boat for fishing the flats here in Hawaii. Built for fly fishing the boat has plenty of dry storage space, securely store 8 fly rods under the gunnel, large bow casting deck. The boat has a very comfortable dry ride, safe, and stable flats fishing skiff. The boat is equipped with a leaning rail on the bow for comfort and when extra balance is needed, 4 U.S Coast Guard approved life jackets, flares, VHF radio and first aid kit. The boat is clean and well maintained.

Having a flats boat gives the anglers the advantage when sight fishing. When the tide is low and fish are tailing in skinny water, wading is the best option using the skiff to move to different flats quickly and getting the best possible shots. When the tide rises and is to high to effectively sight fish while wading, poling and fishing from the boat gives anglers the advantage to see fish. Poling also allows us to cover more water to find the bonefish.

Meeting times will be determined based on weather, fishing conditions, and tides. I will contact you the evening before your charter to time.
