We had so much fun on the Linda Sue for our 3\4 day charter to celebrate my dads birthday. The captain is well experienced & we always catch when he takes us out. The deck hand is extremely knowledgeable and fun to learn from! 1 aku, 1 ono, and 1 mahi mahi caught on this trip! This is a Hawaii must.

Excellent service! The boat was spotless, and very comfortable! Captain Jeff and Sawyer were very friendly and knowledgeable. Best fishing charter out of Kona!

Captain Jeff and Sawyer are knowledgeable, friendly, and capable. My two adult sons and I had a great time fishing on the Linda Sue 2 and we highly recommend you go fishing with Captain Jeff and Sawyer.

I have known Jeff for 4 years now as I met him through a friend Local to Kona.
Jeff is a great Fisherman and knows the waters.

This is my third time on the boat and caught fish the two previous time, Marlin and mahi-mahi.

The fish didn't bite today, when getting back to the dock the deck hand gave us a nice bag of Ono.

Chartered the Linda Sue for 3/4 Day Trip. It was a beautiful day fishing. Sawyer was the best first mate I have had on a charter. He went out of his way to include the young kids we had on board. The kids each got a chance to sit in the fighting chair and practice reeling in the “big one.” Sawyer was also a great source of information about sport fishing in general as well as things to do and see on the island. We had the added bonus of having Sawyer’s younger brother, Fletcher, on board who was in training. They come from a multi-generation fishing family. Although the fish were not biting well, I finally caught my first Tuna (have done a lot of sport fishing and have caught loads of Mahi, Ono, sailfish, and Marlin, but not a tuna). Although we only caught one fish, it was the one I wanted.....A 35lb Skipjack Tuna (Otaru). Highly recommend this charter!
