What a superb day on the water! Fishing our way down to Captain Cook for a snorkeling side trip then fishing our way back up the coast. Chuck, Linda and Tobin took exceptional care of the Hearne and Ricks families and the Firehatt is a top notch boat with all the amenities one desires. I even got to spend time talking all things Texas with Linda who as a native born Texan has blended Hawaiian and Texas hospitality perfectly. A special thank you to Chuck for taking the time to teach my oldest the finer points of commanding a state of the art fishing boat and letting him be Captain for a day. Very special! We will have the Firehatt and our new friends as part of all our future Big Island trips.

My family fished with Fire Hatt Sportfishing Charters and had an incredible trip. We caught and released a 300lb blue marlin, and also caught a huge yellowfin tuna We had a mix of experienced big-game fisherman, as well as some novices, and the crew of Fire Hatt was absolutely phenomenal. Chuck, Linda, and Tobin did an amazing job helping instruct my 12 year old nephew as he fought his first yellowfin tuna, which ended up weighing 150lbs. Throughout the trip, their positive and enjoyable attitude made our day on the water a great one. The boat is very clean and has some of the best fishing tackle and electronics money can buy. I can't wait to get back to Kona to fish with the crew of the Fire Hatt again. I would highly recommend them for people of all skill levels who are looking to go fishing with some of them most experienced, and more importantly, nicest people in all of Hawaii!!!

We travelled with Capt Chuck and Tobin on April 21 for a 6 hour trip. On the trip were my wife, our 3 children, and my mom. From the start we knew it was going to be a special trip. The Fire Hatt was immaculate as we boarded and were given a tour by Capt Chuck. As we left the harbour, a pod of spinner dolphins crossed our bow leaving the harbour.

Capt Chuck kept us entertained with stories all day on the fly bridge. Tobin prepared an excellent mid morning snack and also had all of us sit in the fishing chair so we were prepared when a fish hit. Not long into the trip, we had our first strike and my 12 year old son brought in a 50lb Striped Marlin that Tobin tagged and released. It also got his name in the Tuesday paper. What a beautiful fish! We had a couple more hits during the morning, but the fish didn't hang on. About noon, we got our second good strike, a Shortbilled Spearfish! I was sitting on the fly bridge looking to the back of the boat when it hit and saw it come right out of the water - what a rush! My mom, who was sitting in the fishing chair, screamed as the reel started singing. I hopped into the chair and was able to land the fish. When we got back to the harbour, Tobin cleaned the fish and we took home two bags of fillets. Everyone agreed that it was the best tasting fish that we had ever had.

I would recommend Capt Chuck and the Fire Hatt to anyone who is looking for an excellent fishing day on the Big Island. We spent 1 week on the Big Island and we all agreed that our trip on the Fire Hatt was the highlight of our trip.

Most fun I ever had fishing, and never caught a fish!
My wife, kids and I lake fish often at our cabin in California's Big Bear Lake. This was also our fourth private fishing charter in the 10 years we have been coming to the Hawaiian Islands. First trip without a catch.
But- to spend the day off the Kona Coast on a magnificent sportfishing boat (43' Hatteris) like the Fire Hatt, with two engaging pros like Chuck and Linda, well, that is as good as it gets! Had such a good time visiting and learning about sportfishing and the big island, I almost forgot we were fishing.
When you're out on the ocean, you never know what to expect, and this trip was no exception. Linda spotted a small bobbing buoy with some splashing around it, and we investigated. There was a 150 lb. blue marlin snagged by a buoyed fishing trap. We circled to try and release the fish, but the marlin took the whole contraption deep and we were never able to find her again; despite Chuck's best efforts to get her released.
We also spent time with a very large pod of pilot whales that allowed us to tag along with them. The kids were very excited about all this as well as the generous and delicious fresh fruit and snacks that were provided for them by Linda.
When fishing, you get what the ocean gives and nothing is promised. The husband and wife team of the Fire Hatt went to every length to try and ensure our success fishing, but some days it just doesn't happen, no matter what. All I know is that if you don't go, you have a 0% chance of catching fish. We all live to fish another day.
Thanks Chuck and Linda- We'll be back to fish another day!
