Kids & Families

Family fishing trips is a great way to get quality time with your kids.

If you’re looking to take your Kona family vacation from memorable to truly unforgettable, join Hooked Up for a customized family fishing trip for you and your kids. We specialize in fishing with children in a way that’s both safe and fun, which is why we offer a variety of unique opportunities, from trolling for pelagic fish, to small tuna fishing at one of our buoys, to bottom fishing for big jacks. Whichever you choose, Hooked Up is a great way to spend the day with the family. If you’re uncertain of the exact fishing trip your kids would like best, leave it to us; we always make sure to combine the type of fishing we do when we’re out to get the most action. Hooked Up has large side rails around the cockpit area with plenty of shade, and the crew is great with kids. In fact, Captain Chuck has two children Zac and Hana who grew up fishing on the boat themselves. As Captain Chuck puts it, “I enjoy taking kids out fishing. I see the excitement and joy my two children get after landing a fish, and I know how important it is to get other kids involved and hook their own fish.”

Just a follow-up to say, again, how much we enjoyed our charter with you last Wednesday, and especially to thank you again for those wahoo fillets!!! I know it’s not something that all the captains do, and we really appreciated it. We prepared them as recommended and they were spectacular! Great recipe (panko, etc.). We’ll be happy to recommend “Hooked Up” to anyone we know traveling to Kona.
