2020 Kona, Hawaii Big Game Tournament Schedule

A brand new tournament to the Hawaii Marlin Tournament Series, the Lazy Marlin hunt will be the first tournament of the 2020 season!

The Kona Kick Off is the second tournament of the 2020 Hawaii Malin Tournament Series and kicks off the summer season in style!

The only big game tournament that allows teams to fish anywhere in the world for 8 hours – 1 day, 1 species, 1 winner!

Scoring both ahi and marlin points for the base purse, the Firecracker Open is Kona’s signature “Big Game” tournament.

The Kona Throw Down feathers a winner-take-all purse from the base entry division and is the single largest marlin tournament.

The Skins Marlin Derby takes its format from golf, with the base purse being available each day to the largest marlin over 500 lbs.

The Hawaii Lure Makers challenge is designed to “see which lure is truly the most productive big game tournament lures on the water”!

The first high-stakes, big game tournament in Hawaii to pay a cash purse, and adhere to a tag and release format, the Big Island Marlin Tournament is not one to be missed!

The It’s A Wrap Tournament is the final event of the season for the Hawaii Marlin Tournament Series.

Captain Shawn and his wife Kim took us out for a morning of fishing. This is our second trip with Shawn and as usual,he worked his tail off to find fish. Our first trip we caught a 186 lb.

Thank you Captain Shawn for making our first family fishing experience the best ever; from your morning greeting to the minute we stepped off the boat, you and your crew were warm, friendly and approachable. We ate our Mahi
