If you’re looking for great deals on used lures, the best selection of rare & vintage lures, and or new custom handmade Hawaiian lures you’re at the right place!Big Game Lures Hawaii was founded in 2018 by us, Brent and Sylvie Madison, a few years after moving to Kailua Kona from Phuket, Thailand.

In Thailand, we shared a love of the ocean and diving, but it wasn’t until moving to Kona that we were introduced to Big Game Fishing and of course, the lures...! 

While living in Thailand, I (Sylvie) founded and operated a successful online store, so I knew I wanted to start an online shop from Kailua Kona. (Brent was and still is a commercial photographer). 

Brent’s interest grew in fishing as I became more and more passionate about big game lures and learned as much as I could. 

It was and is  difficult to find information, especially about older, vintage lures. However I have been fortunate to meet veteran captains, old school fishermen, lure aficionados and famed lure makers whom have generously shared their stories and knowledge with me - and still continue to do so.     

 Big Game Lures Hawaii was started because we knew we could offer something different - whether it was classic vintage lures, lower prices on used lures or hard to find new lures, in addition to the information, lure-lore and history I have gathered.

 We have curated a vast collection of trolling lures to sell and continue to add to our inventory. Only about 20% of our total inventory is online at the moment, and we add lures to the website weekly. 

So many lures, so little time!  

Currently the Big Game Lures Hawaii blog is being expanded to include information, interviews and tips from fishing experts in Kailua Kona.

Our goal is to offer personalized service, the largest selection of new and used lures and share the treasure trove of sports fishing history and expertise from Kailua Kona, Hawaii.

Glad you found us!
