The 42' Hooked Up is a personalized, family-oriented deep sea fishing charter service that is located in Kailua-Kona Hawaii. The boat has a proven catch record and you can see this in our tournament results. Owned and operated by Captain Chuck Wigzell and Family.
In Kona we are fishing for blue marlin, spearfish, mahi mahi, ono and tuna year round. But for those of you that just want some action we can target smaller tuna on light tackle or even bottom drop for the bigger jacks when they are available. If you have little kids we don't mind reef fishing. So whether its trolling, live baiting or bottom dropping we will work hard and try different techniques to catch you a fish.
For those of you that are not really fishing people we could do a combo of fishing and whale/dolphin watching. We do a great job with beginners so we will be happy to take you out. The boat is a great place to sun baith, see whales, dolphins, turtles and rays. We also could take you snorkeling or swim with the dolphins.
The boat is very large, clean and comfortable. All the rods and reels we use are in great shape and can catch you a fish of a life time. The boat has plenty of seating up stairs with the captain or has two full size couches in the open cabin, plus a nice clean bathroom. The boat is truly the largest and most comfortable and productive in its price range.
The captain and crew are always polite and courteous to the customers. They try to engage in conversation and answer all your questions through out the day and try to get you involved as much as possible.
