We specialize in CATCHING fish and making sure you have a GREAT time doing it.

Get “Hooked Up” fishing in Kona Hawaii.  Hooked Up is a first class and affordable Kona deep-sea fishing charter business with the experience to catch you a fish of a life time.  Hooked Up is a very large, clean and comfortable 40′ Uniflite that is owned and operated by Captain Chuck Wigzell.

Whether you want some fish for dinner or a trophy blue marlin we will customize your Kona fishing charter trip to meet your needs and expectations.  We fish for blue marlin, stripe marlin, spearfish, mahi mahi, ono and tuna year round off the Big Island of Hawaii.  If your just looking for action or just want to catch some fish for fun we offer light tackle tuna fishing.  This is what truly differentiates us from the rest of the Kona fishing charter boat competition, we don’t mind mixing it up to get you some action. Whether its trolling, live baiting, or light tackle fishing we will work hard and try different techniques to catch you fish.

Hooked Up also specializes in taking kids fishing, and we’re happy to customize your fishing charter trip for the whole family. Hooked Up has a variety of different tackle and equipment to make fishing for the kids easy and fun. With large side rails around the cockpit area and plentiful shade, this boat is safe and comfortable for families big and small.

At the end of the day, we’ll fillet the fish you catch for no charge, and you can have it cooked at our family owned restaurant in downtown Kona, Pancho and Lefty’s, or take it back to your condo to grill yourself.  It doesn’t get any better than that.

Captain Chuck Wigzell has spent the last 20 years running charters out of Kona, Hawaii, and has been fishing his entire life. Capt. Chuck spent his college summers fishing for his family's restaurant aboard his dad's boat and was inspired to start running charters after he graduated. Two decades on, he still catches fish for his parents' restaurant, Pancho & Lefty’s, and you can have your own catch cooked there for a great after-trip meal. Doing so offers you a 20% discount and a meal you won’t forget.

Amazing morning half day trip with Captain Steve and Jason.  Hit the 118lb ahi within 40 minutes.  Finished the trip with a short billed spearfish.  Captain and crew were friendly, helpful, and all around awesome.  Thanks for making this special memory for our family!

Great boat and crew, but ZERO BITES!  Captain told me it was out of season. I spent $600 for trip and tip for ZERO BITES. Should be an advisory on booking out of season. I wasted $600. Not happy!
