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 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 again for a good day on the 27th. It was great landing the big yellowfin tuna and thanks to Bevan for his help. It was a pity we didn’t hook a marlin. My brother saw in the next day’s West Hawaii paper that you had hooked 4 the previous week -such is fishing.
Thanks again and if/when we return to the Big Island we will be out with you again.
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.
We had a GREAT time, and the fish story is making the rounds and expanding as we speak. Thanks for everything!
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.
Since I was taking my daughter Megan along and wanted more action and was less concerned about a chance at a marlin, Chuck planned a trip accordingly. We did some trolling early, but had a great time working a hot ahi bite near one of the buoys.
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.
You guys rock! What a ride we had. That’s the kind of fishing dreams are made of! We will treasure the experience forever and look forward to hangin with you again in the near future. All I can say is Wow! We are sore. RJ, we love ya. I can only assume your butt was kicked as well… Much love, hope to see you guys soon.
Can you please thank Carl for recommending us to Kona Honu Dive for the Manta Ray experience.
We went last night and were delighted by 9 Manta’s. The crew and boat were great.
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.
