Slow day, but caught 3 Mahi Mahi and 1 Ono!

Took my husband fishing for his birthday. Very long drive from our resort in Wailea (about 45 minutes). Had to get up around 4:00 am to make it to Lahaina by 5:30. So, if you're... read more

6 of us decided to partake in what we thought would be an awesome fishing trip. We booked a private tour, woke up at 4:30am just to come back at 10am and none of us had touched a single rod. Not even 1 bite. As we are trolling around in circles you would think that a little bit more effort... More

Wost fishing experience ever. Been fishing for 40 years, engine exhaust beyond normal, lack of effort to find fish. Called to get partial refund, they were not willing to me me halfway.

My 13 year old son and I went out on the 9 hour fishing charter with Captain Johnny and Chris. We were lucky in that there was only one other fisher on the boat with us, so we felt like it was a private charter. We caught lots of fish, first by bottom fishing in the middle of the night.... More

Fishing is all about the catch and if the boat you're in has no bites then no matter how fun the captain and then crew are its going to get tedious and boring quick. Son and I went out with Josh and a relatively young captain. 6 of us went out as a shared 4 hour boat and started with... More

Took my husband fishing for his birthday. Very long drive from our resort in Wailea (about 45 minutes). Had to get up around 4:00 am to make it to Lahaina by 5:30. So, if you're staying in that area, keep the distance in mind. I think the captain's name was Ron? Don? Deckhand was Jameson. They were friendly enough. Captain... More

Talk about a waste of money. Got talked into going with some friends on so called fishing trip, joke. Boat was very dirty, old and beat. The captain and his mate were some of the most boring and dull souls we have met. I know there are many other boats on Maui that blow these guys away. Caught some small... More

We had a great time. We caught an Ono and a couple of small tunas. Timster and Chris were great. It was fun just hanging out with them. None of the boats were catching a lot of fish so we were the lucky ones to get a nice size Ono. Timster filleted it for us and we're having it for... More
