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.
I spent several hours on the internet searching for a charter service. I found your charter prices for the size of your boat to be “the best deal in town”.
Little did I know that we would be eating several meals of fresh Tuna. But the highlight of the full day charter was the 8’7″ Blue Stripped Marlin that I caught. What a thrill that was!
Once again, I would like thank you and your staff for the great time on the waters of Kona.
Had a great day today, even if the big ones didn’t bite, and the 50lb one got away.
The yellowtail was phenomenal, sashimi, as well as stir fried.
Jim and RJ, thanks for a wonderful fishing excursion.
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.
Thanks again to you and Carl for sending us home with a mahi.
Thank you for the great trip a couple of weeks back–had a ball. It was nice to be on a boat captained by a pro, which was spotless to boot. We had a great dinner at the restaurant that night—the fresh fish just added to it too. It was great to meet you and spend the time on your boat.
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.
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.
Thanks again for a great day of fishing on the 19th. We are already looking at our calendar for some dates for next year.
