Silky Sport Fishing

Capt. John Bagwell Kailua-Kona, HI Incorporated Licensed Insured


Silky Sport Fishing offers some of the best Hawaii fishing charters around! Our experienced captain and crew have great knowledge of the area and will know exactly where to go so your fishing trip can be a successful. We take great pride in putting our passengers on top of the fish and delivering them an experience of a lifetime. Our Hawaii deep sea fishing trips are perfect for children and anglers of all skill level. 


Captain John Bagwell will be leading the way as you enjoy one of the best things to do in Hawaii. Capt. John has been fishing for over 5 decades. He loves being out on the water and surrounding himself with all the trophy fish that this popular area is full of. He started running Hawaii fishing charters so he could show other enthusiastic anglers just how much fun it can be. Nothing makes him happier than seeing his clients reel in the catch of a lifetime on his Hawaii deep sea fishing trips. 


Our fishing charters set sail out of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Capt. John makes in a priority to put you where the fish are biting. You may end up exploring the nearby fishing grounds of Holualoa, Kahaluu-Keauhou, Kaloko-Honokohau Park, Wawaloli Beach Park, and many other exciting locations around the West Coast of the Island of Hawai’i. 


Fishing will be done aboard the lovely “Silky”, a beautiful 45ft Viking Sport Fisherman. This vessel is perfect for Hawaii fishing charters. Her set of 485hp Detroit engines will get us to the fishing locations very quickly. Although, we will not need to travel far in order to experience some great fishing. On deck, you will find features such as outriggers, custom fishing tackle, a fighting chair, an air-conditioned cabin, a flybridge, kitchen, shower, bed, and a toilet. There is more than enough room for you and 5 of your friends or family to enjoy Hawaii deep sea fishing. 


We offer 4, 6, and 8 hour trips covering the beautiful waters of Kailua-Kona. Our trips can be customized to fulfil your fishing needs. You are provided with rods, reels, and tackle on each trip. Some of the fishing techniques we will teach you about include bottom fishing, deep sea fishing, jigging, and trolling. Any catch you are able to keep will be cleaned and packages at no extra charge. 


Hawaii is home to some of the best sport fishing in the entire world! This area is filled with exciting species that are sought-after by anglers everywhere. Some of our favorite species to target on our Hawaii fishing charters include Black Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Striped Marlin.
