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.
I just wanted to tell you we all had a great time last Thursday and I can’t wait to do it again in May with my kids!
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.
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.
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.
Thanks Chuck and Kerry for a fun afternoon. So glad we caught our dinner. Your brother treated us royally. Great dinner.
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.
It was nice to fish with you and Zack. It was a time of supreme happiness for me. I am already looking forward to the next chance.
Just wanted to say thanks for a great trip. We made a long run offshore, but it paid off. We ended up with 3 Mahi, 2 of them were nice sized. My wife ended up with the jackpot fish, hooked with a small popper on your light outfit. It gave her a pretty nice battle. Rick had to back down on it to keep it from taking too much line. It was pretty funny. We also got one on a live skipjack– I was surprised a Mahi that size ate it!
Great trip, tell Jim and Rick I said thanks again.
Here are a few photos, in case you want some material to post on the web. The last is a picture of the Mahi, fresh off the grill at Rosas. Thanks again!
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.
