Sea Surface Temperature Charts to Find More Fish

Pelagic species including Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Mahi, can be found in various ranges of water temperatures, gravitating to temperature breaks where bodies of cooler water meet warmer water which creates conditions of upwelling to start the marine food chain. Studying Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) near Hawaii before heading offshore gives any serious angler the deciding upper hand.

FishTrack’s Cloudfree SST imagery - produced using data from collective satellite SST sources and aided by computer modeling to fill in areas blocked by cloud cover - offers the ultimate tool to help offshore anglers pinpoint and precisely locate desirable temperature breaks offshore. Concentrations of bait and gamefish will often occur where temperature and chlorophyll breaks are found in proximity to submarine contour changes around ledges, banks, canyons and seamounts.

With FishTrack’s ability to overlay corresponding altimetry (sea surface height anomalies), bathymetry, ocean current imagery, and local hot spots on top of any SST or Chlorophyll layer, successfully targeting fish offshore has never been easier.

Hawaii Offshore Fishing Hot Spots

The islands of Hawaii are anchored by the sport-fishing port of Kona on the Big Island. Most notably, grander size blue marlin come from the Hawaiian archipelago. As Hawaii is a volcanic island chain, immense dramatic drops occur within a mile off the land, nearly dropping to over 9000 feet as soon as you break the harbor inlets. Depths dive way down to 15000 off of the Big Islands western coast as well as off the northern section of islands at Oahu, Maui and Kauai. In between depths will range anywhere  from 6000 to 12500 feet, offering many seamounts and cliff-sides to troll over. Hot spots include innumerable amounts of FADS, OTEC, and the Tsunami Buoy.

Hawaii Ideal Fishing Seasons

Locations of various fish species are affected by water temperatures, time of year and availability of food. Sea surface temperature (SST) plays on integral role for targeting species in their respective seasons. For Hawaii these are the best months to target these species:

  • Blue Marlin – May to October
  • Striped Marlin – December to March
  • Yellowfin  – June to September
  • Spearfish - February to April
  • Wahoo – June to August
  • Mahi – March to September
