Lucky Lass Haleiwa Charters

Lucky Lass Haleiwa Charters is a family-owned fishing company located in Haleiwa, Hawaii. It offers small intimate bottom fishing tours and trolling out of Haleiwa Harbor. Captain Matthew Ratoni can’t wait to get you hooked up on a fish off the famous North Shore Oahu. The captain offers a different charter fishing experience than most North Shore charters, allowing you to target rarely sought-after trophy fish. Join him aboard and have a fishing trip to remember!

Your adventure will take place on the captain’s 20’ Shamrock offshore sport fishing boat. It runs on a 135 HP diesel inboard engine, uses modern navigation electronics, and can accommodate up to 3 anglers. The boat is also equipped with outriggers and a livewell and features a multimedia system and an ice-box.

Captain Matthew uses both light and heavy tackle and offers bottom fishing, deep sea fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, as well as drift fishing. The wide choice of species you can fish for includes Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Green Jobfish, Rainbow Runner, Bluefin and Giant Trevally, Wahoo, and many more. You’re allowed to keep the fish you catch and you’re welcome to bring kids on the boat.

The captain will take care of all the fishing rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. If you choose to keep your catch, he can also clean it and fillet it for you at no extra fee. Before you start the trip, just be sure to have some snacks, drinks, and your fishing licenses.
