Tournament fishing aboard the Sea Strike

Kona is home to some of the world's biggest blue marlin, great sport fishing and the world-record holding Sea Strike charter boat. Nothing beats the thrill of Kona fishing on the Big Island! These waters are some of the richest in the world -- abundant with sportfish like ahi (tuna), swordfish and the incomparable pacific blue marlin.

You'll enjoy the Kona sport fishing adventure of a lifetime aboard Sea Strike! The Sea Strike has landed numerous world records, including Ray Hawkes' spectacular 1,166-pound blue marlin world record on 50-lb test, caught here in Kona, Hawaii during the Hawaiian International Billfish/ Pro Am Tournament.

Your choice -- small-game, light tackle charter fishing or big-game marlin and tournament fishing in world-renowned Kona waters. Whatever sport fishing you desire, Sea Strike and crew can fulfill your Kona fishing charter dreams. With over 25 years experience of Kona fishing, owner/operator Captain Dale Leverone offers charters and specialized fishing trips for big game and/or unique species. Jigging at 80 fathoms will land highly prized snapper, kahala, ulua and other varieties. Night-time fishing for broadbill swordfish offers a rare chance at this elusive predator.

Kona fishing on the Sea Strike


Joe Pagano and his wife are first time visitors to Kailua Kona Hawaii. They came all the way from New Jersey to Kona for their honeymoon. Joe really wanted to catch a big game fish. Although his new wife isn't really interested in that, she was understanding and found other activities that she enjoyed while Joe went fishing with Captain Dale and first mate Jack Leverone aboard the Sea Strike for a full day exclusive charter. If you really want to catch a marlin, you naturally increase your chances with the amount of time you spend trying. Well, it was Joe's lucky day. In fact, Joe's day was luckier than most. The Sea Strike hooked up 3 times that day! One stayed on, and the battle ensued. Joe boated a nice marlin that weighed in at 176 pounds. Joe is so stoked that he is having the marlin mounted by Gray Taxidermy. Gray's produces a top quality product, and Joe will have the memory of his great fishing adventure on his wall for years to come.
