Even small blue marlin put up a good fight on heavy tackle. In this Kona Hawaii fishing video taken on the Humdinger, the marlin fights hard and stays down until Henry “Butch” Chee Jr. grabs the wire to bring the fish in for clean tag and release. The marlin lights up and starts jumping on the wire while Captain Jeff Fay maneuvers the Humdinger so Butch can bring the fish in close for a clean tag.
Fishing Trip Reviews
Captain Jeff and Brett were great! We are seasoned anglers and can tell a top notch operation when we see it and they for sure are! We were able to hook up 2 marlins during our trip and it was just a great experience. We will be back again and for sure will be booking another trip with the humdinger crew!

I had not been offshore fishing in decades and Captain Jeff made me feel so at ease and all that was before I caught a 300 lb marlin. It just got better after that. I cannot suggest a better day.

First time deep=sea fishing and hooked a 150 lb yellow fin tuna! It was a struggle but with the help and encouragement from Capt Brett and first mate Ryan I was able to land the tuna that was as big as me! Only thing I would change would be not to get seasick after all that exertion. Next time I will stay hydrated and let my Dad do more of the work reeling in the big fish. Jack G

Had the chance to book a Kona fishing charter on our trip to the big island and was fortunate to find a half day charter on the Humdinger on short notice. Having done a lot of deep sea fishing on party boats, I wasnt sure what to expect on a private charter. We never fished far from shore, maybe a mile or two at the most. We caught a small blue marlin and a rare speafish and missed a mystery bite. All in all it was a great day and the crew was fantastic. I would highly recommend them.

We took our first Deep Sea Fishing Trip. The Crew was very informative and made the trip enjoyable. We caught two different types of fish. Our four teenagers had a great time. I would recommend the Humdinger with Jeff and Brett on the boat for a wonderful experience.
