“Great day on the Cherry Pit II”

Cherry Pit Sportfishing
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Cherry Pit is a 32' Force built in Hawaii for Hawaii waters. Bought in 2016, Cherry Pit is a major upgrade from our original boat. Owned and operated by Capt. Bobby Cherry. With a lifetime of experience Capt. Bobby knows the waters off the Kona coast as good as anyone. Here's a typical day on the Cherry Pit... start the day by catching bait, 10-20 opelu (mackerel) then we'll put the lures out and troll for Marlin, Ahi, Mahi-mahi and Ono while we keep our eyes peeled for Ahi schools and Mahi-mahi schools. That's when we start using our live bait, which will greatly increase our chances of catching these fish. Once we've caught our share we'll put the lures back out and troll home.

“Great day on the Cherry Pit II”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Spent a day fishing with Bobby Cherry. The man works very hard to catch you fish. Forget about spending way more money on other charters. Bang for the buck its the Cherry Pit II. Bobby is a true professional and you can tell he has spent a long time on these waters. We ended up with 2 Ahi and 4 Mahi Mahi when most boats came home with nothing. He cleaned our fish expertly and we brought back an incredible feast for our families. Great way to spend a day....and have money left for other fun! - Pat Bell

“Terrific guide”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

I joined my sons on a fishing trip with Bobby and we had a great time. Bobby is professional and experienced, plus fun to fish with. I would recommend him without hesitation for small groups of people wanting a chance at catching some amazing game fish.

“Great Time and Hands On!!!!!”
Reviewed January 29, 2014 via mobile

Bobby was a great guide, knowledgable and friendly. He is dedicated to helping you catch fish and have a good time. He has very reasonable pricing especially for just a couple. We have been with several other charters and this was one of our most enjoyable trips. We loved catching the bait fish :)
Fish On!!!!!

“Terrific Trip!”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

I fished with Bobby Cherry on January 21. There is never any guarantee one will catch fish. Bobby has strong instincts and is fully aware of what other boats have going on and daily fishing action. We caught live bait and landed a 15 lb tuna early in the day. At the end, I boated one marlin (let go of course) two mahi mahi, and two ahi. Bobby is polite, like most captains, he allows the customer to make input and ask questions. He is serious about his business. You have to be realistic when fishing outside of the best months about your probably of catching fish. I highly recommend Bobby, this boat is perfect for two or three people at an attractive price. Bigger boats costs more money, take crew to assist in operation.

“Great Day on the Water!”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

We went out for a full day with Capt. Bobby Cherry on the the Cherry Pit II. We arrived on time and he was prepared, welcoming, and instructive as we headed out, on schedule. We stopped to catch some bait fish and then we caught a Mahi Mahi by 7:30 am. We headed south and eventually found some dolphin pods. Bobby kept the boat with them and we tried to land an Ahi. Even though we didn't get any, Bobby was very proficient in getting us positioned repeatedly to attempt it. While we were out, we saw pilot whales, humpbacks, spinner dolphins and spotted dolphins. Bobby Cherry is a knowledgeable captain that is willing to go the extra step to find you fish. If you don't need the big fancy boat, you can't do better than the Cherry Pit II. It's a small boat with a big heart.
