Pack your bags for great fishing this month off the Canary Islands, Bermuda’s Challenger Bank or the drop-offs and rips around Kona, Hawaii, or stay a bit closer to home and hit Florida or Texas instead. The choice is yours, limited only by budget and imagination. Our editors’ dream trip: targeting big blue marlin and giant bluefin tuna off La Gomera in the eastern Atlantic. Great fishing combined with perfect weather sounds like a perfect summer getaway.
While blues can be caught in Kona’s calm seas year-round, July is one of the best for bigger fish.
