Don’t let talk of the rainy season and Kona storms dissuade you from getting rid of that cabin fever. The winter months are actually a great time to reserve a Kaanapali beach vacation rental and go fishing in Maui. Depending on which month you choose to visit, you’re apt to catch big eye tuna, striped marlin and mahi. Plus, the area’s fishing charters offer visitors deep water, inshore and beach fishing opportunities. So you’ll be able to pick your passion.
Some of the sport fishing businesses located within driving distance of our Maui Condos offer cleaning and filet services too. Consequently, you’ll be able to take your catch back to your rental’s fully equipped kitchen and prepare it as you see fit. You can also grill them on our outdoor grill or hire a personal chef. They’re available nearby as well and will often prepare visitors’ personal catches in conjunction with full, authentic Hawaiian meals. Examples include big eye tuna poke appetizers, grilled Hawaiian nairagi topped with fresh pineapple salsa and macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi.
If you’d rather go fishing near our Maui condos without a charter guide, that’s possible too. There are sections of the beach where you can cast a line without having to purchase a marine recreational fishing license. However, you’ll want to be mindful that some fish you’re likely to catch will either be inedible by nature or protected by law. For instance, it’s against state law to catch striped mullet during the winter months and you can’t keep a moana that’s less than 7 inches long. Further information about the rules and which gear restrictions apply from December to March are available through the state’s Division of Aquatic Resources.
