Is four hours long enough?

We usually tell people that four hours is plenty of time to either catch dinner or to get tired of trying. We've caught over 50 fish in a single four hour bottom fishing trip.

What should we bring? / not bring?

We provide all the bait, tackle as well as a cooler with ice so you don't need to bring one of your own. The weather is usually pretty nice but be prepared for sun with a hat and sunscreen. It can also get pretty windy on the way to and from the bottom fishing spot [...]

What if we catch a “Trophy”?

We catch a lot of really nice and interesting fish here on Maui and if you have room for one of them on your wall, the crew will be happy to set you up with a taxidermist, or if you prefer, a fish printer. For replica mounts we use Gray Taxidermy, the worlds largest marine [...]

How many fish can we expect to catch?

Again, every day is different. I usually say that on at least 9 out of 10 trips, everybody catches something, usually several somethings, and since we target the tasty ones, it is usually enough for dinner. Our record is 59 fish in one 4 hour trip (mostly little guys).

What kind of fish will we catch?

Every day is different and although most of our fish are caught on the bottom, we can also catch some big game fish like Mahimahi, Ono, and Tuna while trolling to and from the bottom fishing spots. We even caught a 350+# marlin on the way out to the bottom fishing spot one morning. We [...]

How far in advance should we book?

It depends on the time of year. In the busy season, which is usually when kids are on spring, summer, or Christmas break, many Maui fishing boats can get pretty booked up. You may want to call us at least two or three weeks in advance if your schedule is tight. If your schedule is [...]

Can we bring the kids?

Bottom fishing on Maui is great for kids. We usually fish where the water is calm and with a small number of passengers and the captain and crew both available to help out, even young kids get a chance to bring in some nice fish.

How far out do you go? / How deep do you fish?

This depends on the weather and the crowd. We may end up going as far as 9 or 10 miles from the harbor down the coast to get out of the wind but usually stay within 3 or 4 miles from shore where the water is calm in the 100 to 300 ft. depth range.

What is the weather going to be like? / Is it going to be rough?

On the Marjorie Ann we always do our best to show you a good time while fishing on Maui, and that means finding calm water to fish. Even though Maui is generally a pretty windy place (especially at Ma'alaea Harbor) we can almost always find nice water just down the coast toward Wailea to the [...]

Can we go whale watching?

The calm Maui waters we fish are the same ones the whales travel all the way from Alaska to winter in, so during whale season, our fishing trips usually come with a free whale watch, but if you are just into watching whales, just book a private charter. A good time for whale watching is [...]
