Had a great time. Booked an all day fishing trip for my son, son-n-law, and myself. Caught yellow fin tuna (Ahi), one Mahi Mahi, and two blue Marlins. Hooked the two blue marlins at same time - action packed fun. Ask for Captain "Killer" and Jimmie the non stop action deck hand. A fishing trip of a lifetime - another... More

I have been fishing before but never with "PRO'S" like these guys!! Captain Dave understands fish and how they think and Jimmie's true passion to catch the fish and teach you how to reel them in was truly a wonderful high on life experience for me!!!! I am a 58 year old woman who joined a party of 3 men... More

The crew is extremely experienced, and captain Dave is very knowledgeable about Hawaiian fishing. The deck hand, Jimmy, has a great passion for the sport and it shows in his intensity. We really enjoyed them both. There were 6 guys in our group and we caught 6 Mahi and lost one marlin. It was a great day all around. You... More

We booked a half day trip that we shared with another couple. The price was fair, and I've always wanted to go for the trophies in Hawaii. It turns out that winter is probably the worst time for big game fishing in Hawaii, and they tell me that summer is best. Furthermore, I am told the Big Island (Hawaii) has... More

Capt Dave and Jimmy were fantastic. Have been on several deep sea fishing trips all over the world. These guys are real pro's, who work their tails off. Did not get a Marlin, but they were hell bent on it. My next trip to Maui, I will plan on a three day trip with them. Boat was clean, cabin was... More

Great time on Finest Kind with Randy and Jimmy. Booked a four hour shared and had two Ono within the first hour. Had another bite later and landed a tuna in the last hour. Even without the fish, would have been a great trip. Randy and Jimmy worked hard for us and made sure we were happy throughout the trip.... More

We live in the Florida Keys and are avid sports fisherman. We just wanted to go fishing in Maui. We already knew that the chance of catching nothing was high unlike at home. It came true...LOL. Had some real strong bites in the morning, but we couldn't get them in the boat. It wasn't for the lack of trying. The... More

My husband, myself and our 4kids (ages 10-16yrs) arrived at 6am, very excited to do a sport fishing trip. After we listen to Ryan tell us how little money they make and only make money with the fish they catch and tips, off we go. Chad put the lines out and gave a 10 minute blurb on the chair to...

This was the worst fishing trip ever! After several emails as well as phone conversations prior to booking a 4 hour 2 person private fishing trip they still couldn't get it right! We were very clear about wanting to bottom fish and were told that was no problem. Well it was a problem, the first hour of our 4 hour... More

Went out fishing with these experts. They were personable, knowledgable, helpful and safety conscious. They truly cared that we had a great experience. Honestly on the trip we went on we only caught one small fish, but i would totally go fishing with this company again. It didn't seem like any other fishing excursions were catching fish on the day... More
