KAI BEAR SPORTFISHING
Kai Bear markets itself as one of the finest operations in all of Hawaii, and they believe the presentation of their product is the key to their business. Co-Captain's Ben Ellsworth, Jordan Barefoot and Lance Keener are both experienced Kauai fishermen who are both professional and safety conscious.
In addition to deep sea trolling and baiting methods, these well equipped boats will do bottom fishing upon request (private charters only), fly fishing, weddings, funerals, whale watching, and romantic sunset cruises which even include your first bottle of champagne. They will also do serious overnight fishing trips to places such as Niihau, Nihoa, Kaula Rock, the Middle Bank, and Lehua Rock.
Both Kai Bear and the Grander have new (2004) Cummins 315HP twin diesel engines which provide a quiet, smoke free ride. Both Kai Bear boats are currently equipped with custom built rods by Blue Water and Penn Gold Reels ranging in size from 30 class to 130 class. They also carry light tackle spinning rods on board for special occasions.
As for the disposition of the fish, the captain and crew will cut table fish for all guests aboard the boat upon availability.
Sportfishing also offers Share Trips:
For those who would like to share a boat with others rather than charter privately, Kai Bear Sportfishing offers the following share trips. Rates are plus 10% sales/harbor tax and a temporary fuel surcharge of $15/person:
Note: the # of persons minimum means the boat must have at least the minimum number of passengers to run the trip. However, your group (or single) can be less than the minimum, and Kai Bear Sportfishing will try to match you with others wanting to go to make the minimum number of passengers. The maximum means you will not be on the boat with more than the maximum number of anglers specified.
