Aloha and welcome aboard the Bob Marlin out of Haleiwa, Hawaii on the North Shore of Oahu. My name is Captain Kevin and I have been fishing out of Haleiwa for almost 20 years.
Our target species are Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Skipjack Tuna, Wahoo, Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, and more – with any luck, you’ll have tight lines in no time. Our most productive way of fishing out of North Shore is by trolling artificial lures. Most days we will try to catch live bait to use as well.
On half-day trips, clients keep 25 lb of fish, and on full-day trips, 50 lb of fish. We will clean your catch so you can enjoy it later.
My boat is a 33’ Luhrs express cruiser with space for 6 passengers. It has outriggers, downriggers, and everything you need for a productive day on the water, plus a toilet on board. There’s plenty of seating protected from the sun, a big bow, and a large open deck for standing/moving around. The sculpted lines, Carolina flare, and gently rising sheer are more than just a stylish custom look – they all contribute to the boat’s exceptional blue water handling and a comfortable, dry ride. A side console, a standard easy-access tower, and fantastic visibility from all points make this boat ideal for whatever your needs.
The Bob Marlin is extremely clean, with tons of upgrades and new equipment. I will supply rods and reels for you, all tackle, ice and a cooler. Kids are welcome aboard, and the charter has child-sized life vest available. Also, remember to bring drinks and snacks so that nobody gets cranky on an empty belly. You’ll have the help of a First Mate to put you on fish. Captains and mates often work for tips, and it’s customary to offer them a 10–20% tip.
We can’t wait to see you on board! Aloha
