I booked a trip with humdinger March 2017 while in Hawaii on my daughters spring break. My expectations were realistic - I wanted to try fishing for marlin even though it was not the prime season. I did not expect to hook or even land a monster. I just wanted to give it a shot. The captain made sure I... More

Our time with Humdinger Sport Fishing was the highlight of 2 weeks in Hawaii. We know that fishing does not guarantee catching but - 4 fisherman, 4 hook ups. We landed 3 and totally appreciated the guidance and assistance of Captain Brett and Cowboy. What a dream come true: a 500 pound blue marlin (released), a mahi mahi, and a... More

I would have rated this a 5 if we at least caught one fish; but alas, no luck. What I really enjoyed was first the ease of communication with this crew, first in scheduling, then when they suggested re-scheduling due to choppy water, and later on the boat. I found them informative about the fishing, the island, etc. While we... More

Bill, Thanks for your review. We appreciate your comments and feedback. Unfortunately the only two things out of our control are the weather and getting the fish to bite. Unfortunately, we struggled with both on your charter. I am glad we were able to move your trip around so you had a more pleasant day on the water, albeit enjoying... More

Jeff and Brett were awesome. Punctual. Did not skimp on the hours. Boat was immaculate. Super friendly and informative. We caught a mahi-mahi. Brett cleaned it, prepped it, bagged it and sent it home with us on a bed of ice. We left him the 2nd bag as 22# of fish was too much for our last 2 days on... More

Although the fish did not co-operate and make a show, the boat was comfortable and well equipped. Jeff and Brett were helpful, friendly and worked all day to make our trip fun.

Great experience...again! Jeff and Brett really have the knack to put fish on the lines. Have fished on this boat off and on for 40 years and she always raises quality pelagic species.

We were unable to catch any fish, but they were both wonderful and made the experience fun anyway. We also were able to get some fantastic camera shots of dolphin. The waters were relatively calm, so that was a plus. Overall a great trip even though it would've been fantastic to actually catch fish. We would still book with them... More

After catching nothing on a 1/2 day trip with another local charter, my wife and I decided we didn't want that to be our lasting memory from our vacation to the Big Island. We did some research to find a different charter and luckily found Humdinger! From the start, Brett and Darren were amazing! They are down to earth guys... More

Capt. Jeff Fay and Brett Fay did it again! Fun was had by all on our last outing fishing. 2/15/17 not the best time of year to fish and the weather can be unpredictable. Capt still put us on some Ono (Wahoo) and Mahi. I got to watch my son catch his first Mahi Mahi. A little slow fishing but... More
