Listen to what the crew is telling you. They are a wealth of information and only want you to have a fun time and catch fish. This was my first time sitting in the chair waiting for a hit on a line. It's pretty darn exciting when it finally happens and you get to start reeling in your catch!!

Try a half day trip here before going on longer ones if you’ve never tried. Seasickness is real and miserable. Luckily I was ok but it was there. Someone else on our boat started puking 15 min in. Poor girl. At least she caught a fish too.

You are not going to find a more picturesque and idyllic place to fish than right here on the Big Island. From the crystal clear deep blue waters to the deep ocean just mins from the harbor, Kailua-Kona is among the best places that I have fished in the world.

Always remember why its called fishing, not catching and think of catching as a bonus, because it should be about the moments you share with family and friends, old as well as the new you meet and make on your adventure. We met some of nicest,friendliest new people on out trip!

I took my 8yr old son out, The communication from the owner Brent was fantastic and very customer service oriented. Captain Dan got us on the fish, my son caught a Shortbill Spearfish (Hebi) about 7' long, it was a great experience, TJ was great on the deck making sure he landed it and everyone was safe. There was more Skipjack than we felt like reeling in.. :-) Everything was fantastic, the owner Brent, the Crew Captain Dan and TJ. Thank you all for an amazing trip!!

Seasoned fishermen from Alaska found the best fishing charter in Kona. The Skillet with Captain John & Deckhand Dave were incredible. We've fished Mexico but Kona beats it. Caught a huge Tuna and a smaller blue marlin. Weather started off iffy but turned glorious. Boat was impeccable. Highly recommend.

Jim and his crewmen Will did a fantastic job with our trip. They got us on some bait and eventually we hooked up to 140 pound yellowfin tuna. It took us 1 hour and 20 minutes to land it and thanks to Jim and Will helping out we finally got it in the boat. Thanks again guys for an unforgettable day of fishing.

Captain Dave put us on some fish even with an outgoing tide and some stormy weather. We caught some small tuna and then we trolled those and I caught the biggest mahi of my life. Thanks again Dave. It was an amazing trip. Will be back.

This trip was a blast! Captain John and Dave were so great the entirety of our 6 hour charter. The boat and equipment were fantastic and very comfortable. Captain John and Dave were very knowledgeable of the different types of fish, lures, deep sea fishing, etc. They were super accommodating the entirety of our charter. We would definitely book with them again!

Captain & Mate (Rooster) were great. Multiple bites. Caught blue marlin 2h in. Only improvement wold have been a meat fish for supper, but the fishing gods had their say. The crew tried hard to make it happen. No fault there. Would definitely come again & recommend to others!

What a boat!!! I can't wait to be back on the Reel Escape. Brent and his first mate bent over backwards to ensure a great day on the water and worked tirelessly in helping us catch some amazing fish. No long boat rides to catch fish either; we were fishing minutes out of the harbor - such a great location. Thank you for the great day - see you on our next visit to Hawaii!!

Highly recommend Au’ Struck and their crew. Dave and Alex were very knowledgeable and patient. I had my son who just turned 10 and my nephew with me. We have some fishing experience, but we’re not pros. Alex and Dave walked us through it all. We had a great experience. Boat had everything we needed including snacks and water. Bathroom was clean. Boat and gear were in great shape. Very glad with booked with Au’ Struck!

Spectacular trip. Jeff and his crew were extremely knowledgeable and use multiple techniques to put us on fish. I’m an avid fisherman and thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Will definitely return. High speed, trolled for wahoo, trolled and caught mahi-mahi. Use some lighter weight tackle and caught some small, yellowfin, tuna, that the we then used to troll live.

We had a party of three and each one of us caught the fish we sought out to catch. Two huge Mahi Mahi’s and a big Blue Marlin. We had lots of fish filets to take home with us.
