Tagging and Releasing Blue Marlin on the Humdinger

Allison Benash of California caught nice blue marlin on a full day Hawaii fishing charter with Captain Jeff Fay and deckhand Henry “Butch” Chee Junior.  The marlin, estimated at 300lbs., put up a good fight for about a half an hour and never gave up once Butch grabbed the leader.  The big blue marlin was tagged and released unharmed.

Fishing Trip Reviews

Fishing Review by Strany06 Oregon My 13 year one son and I spent a half day trip with Jeff and Brett on Humdinger. First time deep sea fishing for us and though the fishing was slow, we really had a nice time. Fishing is not always catching, but the guys worked hard and in the end we landed a nice Mahi Mahi. Would certainly come back again. Thanks guys!

fishing charter review by Riley S FriscoMy friend and I had the privilege of going out on the Humdinger Sportfishing boat. It was the best fishing experiencing that I have ever had in my life. The crew was excellent by making sure that we had a great experience while we were on the Humdinger Sportfishing boat. My friend and I both caught 40 pound fish during the time that we were on the Humidinger Sportfishing boat, great day.

Fishing Review by Paulbetrippin Vancouver, Canada Our family of 6 spent a morning out with Jeff and Brett. Great crew! Although we didn’t have the best luck in the deep sea they made sure give us an extra hour of their time so that our kids could reel in a couple of fish each closer to shore. Great set up, great gear and we had an awesome time….. also saw dolphins and sharks. Thanks guys!

fishing charter review by A TripAdvisor Member My wife and I spent the morning with Capt Jeff Fay and his son, Brett. We both had a fabulous time, we each caught a Blue Marlin (150lb & 275lb). Brett was fantastic, showing us how to use the equipment and what to expect when we had a fish on the line. It was both of our first times sportfishing and we would definitely choose Humdinger again for our next excursion. Thanks so much for making a memorable day that we will both remember for a lifetime.

Captain Jeff and Brett were fantastic and worked hard to help ensure we had a great trip! We will definitely book another trip with them the next time we return to Kona!
