Default I need a place to stay on Maui that's good for a bank maggot.

Not wanting to pay for guided fishing. Just want to sling some shiny stuff from the beach. Can anyone recommend a place to stay where I can do this without getting in a car?

Looks like around Kaanapali and Lahaina. I appreciate the advice.

When I first saw this thread, I said good luck with that. Glad you decided to get a car. Beautiful island, you will enjoy you stay.

I'll be over there next month if all goes well. If your going then we're going to split a charter with friends, a good one from what I see. Also interested in what shore fishing there is.

There is a bank guide based there. I chucked everything I had at them, for salmon and trout. Went out with the guide and my bank world changed. I fought fish every day after that including my last morning there. PM m for details. You are already spending money, why burn your time?

I'd say invest in snorkel gear and get in the water! Honestly, I've had more fun swimming with the animals than catching them.

In all the years my wife and I have gone, I've only brought my fishing gear once and truly prefer swimming than fishing.

But, man, there are times when I wish I had my gear.... Then I catch myself thinking, "I'd probably never have caught those fish anyway."

Go past Makena to Big Beach State Park...park in the main lot...walk to the ocean...once you hit the beach go right towards the cliffs...there is a trail over the ridge that separates Big Beach from Little Beach.

Walk across little beach to the far side...there is a point that sticks out that you can access.

We caught multiple types of fish...basically could have caught as many as we wanted.

We used squid strips on jig heads.

Wear some type of slip resistant shoes as the rocks are wet - and sharp.

When you head back in the late morning/early afternoon...and are walking across little beach...keep your eyes down.

There is a "lot" to see on that beach.

The guy in the food truck in the parking lot does some great fish tacos.

GL,

This! But be damn careful on that trail and on the point as the waves break.

I am with TanTastic on this one... I love fishing as much as most guys on here, but getting to SWIM in tropical water with fish is something we can't do here in Oregon. If you can, check out the Molokini Express from Blue Water Raft (something like that). They go out in a hard bottom raft that goes 50+ mph and dump you inside Molokini Crater. It is not expesnsive and you don't burn a whole day. I went on our honeymoon and then took my own kid 20 years later and it was just as fun.

I rented a kayak from the hotels near the Kihei boat launch and trolled around the rocks with top water popper flys various bass streamers and intruder fly's . I used a collapsible 9 wt. and put on alot of 30lb test braid for backing with wire leaders for the barracuda off shore and switched to mono leaders for the jack trevallies which were off the rock jetties.

Excellent replies. Thank you all for the help. Funds are pretty tight on this trip so I've got to find inexpensive ways to have fun. I am looking forward to snorkeling but I just can't go to a place with fish and not try to catch one.

Listen to this! Some scary sights on this beach. Some that get burnt into your mind for a long time.

We went last year, and i would highly recommend the northern part of the Island over Hana area. We were there 10 days, had a car, and drove clear around the entire island. The island has some great snorkeling opportunities, which we did a lot of right off the beaches. I'm a died in the wool fisherman, but brutha..... spend your time snorkeling.....

check this place out. https://goo.gl/maps/yhv2Mdwz5nuSMNnP8

Just north of this resort has a small beach full of sea turtles that were a blast to swim with.

With that being said, we did take an 8 hour Marlin trip out of Lahaina that was a real expensive boat ride. The trip was A gift from my wife. Zero action, and the guys on the boat didn't even let you touch your poles until the fish was on and you were strapped in the fighting chair. THEN they hand you a pole.... It was NOT what i call fishing. My wife was disgusted. They told us we would have other fishing opportunities besides marlin, and they lied...

Definitely rent a car with full insurance... worth every dime. Kirk

Thanks Kirk, we're actually staying right near there. Looks like the consensus is to get a car so I think we'll go ahead and get one.
I still need to figure out what rods to take though. I don't have any surf rods. Just salmon and steelhead.

There is a lot of stuff you can do on Maui that doesn't cost you fortune. Getting a car allows you to see a lot more of the island. Driving The Hanna Highway is highly over rated IMO. We did it, and was disappointed.

One of The coolest drives we had was going around the northern part of the Island and down the east coast line to Kahului. We saw more wild life on that drive than anything. wild boars all over the place. The east coast is more rugged with more rocks. Might provide some fishing opportunities too.

But taking a drive up to the top of Mount Haleakala in the late afternoon and watching the sunset is outrageous. Definitely a highlight of our trip. Everyone talks about the sunrise up there, but the sunset was excellent! (take some long pants and a coat or a blanket) 10,000 ft it gets cold, but the view above the clouds is unbelievable. Kirk
