Don’t worry about fishing tackle! “Live Bait” provides all the fishing equipment needed to catch Marlin, Wahoo (Ono), Tuna (Ahi), Mahimahi, and anything else that has the misfortune to cross our path. Just bring food and drinks.

Our policy is to try to assure that everyone on the boat gets an opportunity to fight a fish and has enough fish to take home for a meal. However, please be aware that a major portion of the crews income is derived from the sale of fish. Our goal is to try to give our charters, as a group, 40 lbs of whole fish or about 20 lbs of filets. However, to achieve this goal we will only clean fish weighing less than 100 pounds and any leftovers stay with the boat.

This policy works to your advantage as it often means staying with a school of fish that are biting as opposed to being back at the dock when your time is up. Note: Please bring plastic bags or an empty cooler to take some fish home. The fragrance of fish has a tendency to linger in car interiors!

Although not in any way necessary, if you have a good day of fishing, tipping of the crew is appropriate. (20% is standard)

We are always happy to hear your suggestion and comments. Please let us know how we can better serve you. For additional information please contact us at (808) 696-1604 or send e-mail to:
