Hooked on Kauai specializes in two different fishing techniques: "whipping" and "dunking". These two styles of fishing were developed to handle the different kinds of habitat here on the islands. Whipping is the practice of casting top-water and mid-water lures over coral reefs and deep-water locations using a 8-9 foot fishing pole with a spinning reel. Dunking consists of casting out a 5-8 ounce lead weight with a leader and baited hook coming off of a swivel about 24' up from the lead or 2 feet from the sandy ocean bottom. Dunking poles use heavier tackle and can range from 10 - 13 feet in length. Each approach is targeting different fish in the water column therefore increasing the chance of getting a strike.  Both techniques are simple in concept but do require a good amount of strength and stamina.

Whipping poles are available for short term rental. Just like our guided tours, we customize each rental package to meet your specific needs. We also provide location suggestions & directions, information regarding target species size and catch limits, general rules of how to fish responsibly on our reefs and shorelines and backpacks with a starter kit of all the necessary lures and tackle for your very own fishing adventure! A reservation at least 2 weeks prior to your desired fishing trip is strongly suggested.

* Due to Kauai's challenging and fragile ecosystem rental packages are not intended for the beginning or novice angler. Freshwater fishing proficiency does not qualify, SALTWATER EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED. Inexperience can result in a negative and sometimes even severe impact on the ocean environment. It is highly recommended that you first seek professional and or local knowledge in order to learn the proper techniques of fishing effectively, responsibly and sustainably from this unique and precious resource.
