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.
