Get “Hooked Up” fishing in Kona Hawaii. Hooked Up is a first class and affordable Kona deep-sea fishing charter business with the experience to catch you a fish of a life time. We have great reviews and a proven catch record and you can see this in our tournament results and Kona fishing report blog. Hooked Up is a very large, clean and comfortable 40′ Uniflite that is owned and operated by Captain Chuck Wigzell.
Whether you want some fish for dinner or a trophy blue marlin we will customize your Kona fishing charter trip to meet your needs and expectations. We fish for blue marlin, stripe marlin, spearfish, mahi mahi, ono and tuna year round off the Big Island of Hawaii. If your just looking for action or just want to catch some fish for fun we offer light tackle tuna fishing or even bottom dropping for big jacks. This is what truly differentiates us from the rest of the Kona fishing charter boat competition, we don’t mind mixing it up to get you some action. Whether its trolling, live baiting, or bottom dropping we will work hard and try different techniques to catch you fish.
Hooked Up also specializes in taking kids fishing, and we’re happy to customize your fishing charter trip for the whole family. Hooked Up has a variety of different tackle and equipment to make fishing for the kids easy and fun. With large side rails around the cockpit area and plentiful shade, this boat is safe and comfortable for families big and small.
At the end of the day, we’ll fillet the fish you catch for no charge, and you can have it cooked at our family owned restaurant in downtown Kona, Pancho and Lefty’s, or take it back to your condo to grill yourself. It doesn’t get any better than that.

You guys rock! What a ride we had. That’s the kind of fishing dreams are made of! We will treasure the experience forever and look forward to hangin with you again in the near future. All I can say is Wow! We are sore. RJ, we love ya. I can only assume your butt was kicked as well… Much love, hope to see you guys soon.
Really enjoyed fishing with you, Rocky and Sean yesterday. It was all that we had hoped for and more. We ended up eating at your family restaurant and it was easily the best Mexican food we have had in Hawaii. I had such a blast, it convinced me that I need to go again before I move this summer.
Just thought we would let you know Rosa’s cooked up our ono, and all our plates were wonderful. Thanks again for a great trip and the suggestion on Rosa’s Cantina.
Thanks again for a great day of fishing on the 19th. We are already looking at our calendar for some dates for next year.
Thanks again for a great day on the water on Monday PM. Susanne, Alexandra, Jennet, Nick and I rally appreciated your tailored trip just for us. Too bad we didn’t “Hook Up” on anything on either the outbound or return trip from Buoy F. We finally ran out of tuna yesterday after four days of great Poki appetizers and Ahi for dinner.
My husband and I went fishing with you while honeymooning. This was our catch. We were reminiscing about what an awesome day we had and I thought I would send you a picture of our catch. The smiles say it all! We also caught 2 amberjacks and a skipjack that day. We have a 4 month old son now… can’t wait to bring him to Hawaii and hopefully do a little fishing with him.
Thanks for a great fishing trip. You and Ricky made the whole experience one to remember.
Thank you for making my husband’s 60th birthday the best ever. His dream was to catch a Marlin and he did it thanks to you! We booked your South Point overnight charter and had the time of our life’s. It was so much fun.
Just wanted to say thanks for a great trip. We made a long run offshore, but it paid off. We ended up with 3 Mahi, 2 of them were nice sized. My wife ended up with the jackpot fish, hooked with a small popper on your light outfit. It gave her a pretty nice battle. Rick had to back down on it to keep it from taking too much line. It was pretty funny. We also got one on a live skipjack– I was surprised a Mahi that size ate it!
Great trip, tell Jim and Rick I said thanks again.
Here are a few photos, in case you want some material to post on the web. The last is a picture of the Mahi, fresh off the grill at Rosas. Thanks again!
It was nice to fish with you and Zack. It was a time of supreme happiness for me. I am already looking forward to the next chance.
