Was a good weekend for Ez Pickens!! We fished the firecracker tournament and after the first day we were in 3rd place with 247 points.
We just wanted to say thank you for a fun day of fishing on September 19th and a great day out on the boat. We loved it!. Also we will call to book a full day with you for our next visit in February. We hope to catch our dinner and have you cook it! Again, thank you and your crew.
I have told anyone who is headed to Hawaii about you, your crew, and your boat and how your expertise helped me fulfill a life long dream. You see I am a paraplegic and never thought I would be able to do something like this and had resigned myself to watching my son, wife and friend fish.
Julie and I had a great time with you guys….the marlin was a nice way to spend an afternoon, too!! No one believes that she was 625#…until they see the pics!!
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 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.
What can I say about our day besides Jim and Rocky were exceptional from the minute we got on the boat until we got off at the harbor. For Geoffrey, Jeremy, my wife Lauren and myself it was the best day fishing we have ever had in the islands.
We had a GREAT time, and the fish story is making the rounds and expanding as we speak. Thanks for everything!
Just wanted to send you a big thank you for the great day on the water. We all saw action and that’s we we asked for. Sometimes you tie into a big one, some times you don’t. It was a good day to be on the water.
Thanks so much for setting us up for Fishing on your boat on Friday. What a day! Many thanks for a great day, and to you and your crew for all of your aloha spirit.
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.
