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.”
You outdid yourself again. I would like to thank you for another great fishing experience. Wendy, Marie, Jody, Laurie and I had wonderful day fishing a couple of weeks ago. Catching that shark was an experience I’ll never forget.
I just wanted to say thank you for the great time we had on the water. You and your brother are true professionals with a level of enthusiasm I didn’t expect from people who are so experienced. We didn’t get into as many fish as I’d hoped, but that’s fishing. We would’ve completely missed the Humpback whales had you not spotted them. For my kids, that was a highlight of the day. The striped marlin was my highlight. Rosa’s Canteen & Grill did a great job on the marlin I caught. The atmosphere in Rosa’s is very welcoming.
I look forward to seeing the photo you took. I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a fishing charter.
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.
Chuck, I wanted to make sure you knew that my family and I enjoyed ourselves last Saturday. It was a slow day for sure but Jim and RJ persevered and managed to hook into a sizable Mahi Mahi. Coincidentally, the charter that the Hilton recommended, was sniffing around our stern after the hook up!
After that I definitely knew we made the right choice. If you’d like me to give you a good review on your website or Yelp just let me know.
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.
Thanks Chuck and Kerry for a fun afternoon. So glad we caught our dinner. Your brother treated us royally. Great dinner.
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 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.
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.
Just wanted to say thank you for a very memorable day. Great boat, great crew and a 452 pound Blue Marlin was icing on the cake. Happy fishing.
