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 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 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.

Kenji left Kona this morning. He wanted to thank you for a memorable fishing trip. He was particularly impressed with that large Ulua. The photo with Ulua will be his treasure. He was also awed by two Blue marlins which were, of course, his first experience. Yellowfin tuna was also awesome. The only missed target was a large Kahala. He wanted to come back for revenge (?) ASAP.
Libby and I had a great time with you last Thursday. While we didn’t catch a Marlin, the 46″ Amberjack gave me a good fight. I hope next time we come back we can bring our sons.
Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time with Rick and Shawn on our full day charter (sorry you couldn’t be with us)!!!!
See you next May!!!!
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.
Thanks again for the fantastic fishing charter. All the best to you and I hope we go fishing again sometime in the future.
We had avery nice time. Your crew was excellent. We will be back again. Thank you so much.
I was damn lucky to have decided up on Hooked Up! The boat it’s nice and big, comfortable, and spotless. Every outfit was tournament ready; no corners cut anywhere. Simply the best of everything. Hope we get back one day, but if we don’t, at least I’ll know that I got to see how great Kona can be.
Thanks again for a good day fishing. Still looking for the blue… Will look you up if we make it back there.
I just wanted to say thanks for the 3rd awesome fishing trip in a row. Last year I was lucky enough to catch a 95 lb. sailfish and Russ caught a 180 lb. blue marlin, and we got several mai mai, ono, and tuna on the south point 2 day trip. this year I was lucky enough to catch a 300 lb. blue marlin and Gayle caught a 150 lb. blue marlin. what a trip it was. You, your boat, and the crew is the best thanks again.
Just wanted to send a quick thanks out to Jim, Bill & yourself for the great day fishing. I’m already trying to convince my brothers to make the trek down to Kona for a guys only trip.
