Had my friend and I caught any fish, I'd have probably given him another star. That's not entirely his fault, but when I talked with Jay in advance of the trip, I got the impression, early February was a decent time to fish the Kona...More

Jay the Captain was rude. He continuously told my girlfriend to put down the camera. Going on a fish charter with Jay was like paying $400 to work as a mate.

Do yourself and your family a favor and DO NOT BOOK with Jay. Extremely arrogant and not a pleasurable person to be around.

We've used this boat several times over the past five years. While no one can guarantee fish, we have gotten our share, landing Ono's, a 900, 250, and 175# marlin and a mai mai. They are also $200+ less than other charters in Kona.
