Chuck Wigzell

Member since March 2016 Kailua-Kona, United States
Background
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.
Techniques
Trolling for blue marlin, mahi mahi, ono and tuna.
