33' Blackfin Sportfishing vessel Based in Kona. Charter Prices are per boat (Maximum 6 people) and include rods, reels, tackle and bait..

The “Hustler” is one of the nicest Blackfin Sportfishing vessels that you’ll ever board, as it was completely rebuilt from its hull to the bridge in 2019. They got new upholstery and lounge cushions, air conditioning, teak wood, marine controls, LED lighting and salon appliances, as well as brand new 370 HP Cummins engines that can reach a top speed of just over 34 knots. The Hustler Boat is an extremely comfortable boat, and it is kept in immaculate condition inside and out.

The Hustler Sportfishing team is a legend in the Hawaiian waters! They held World and Hawaiian Record Fish including giant Blue Marlin, huge Yellowfin Tuna, and a monstrous 1207 lb Shortfin Mako Shark. Prior to the pandemic in 2020, The Hustler Team was the top “Big Fish” boat in Kona with (8) Blue Marlin that all measured or weighed more than 700lbs. If you want to go fishing with an outstanding crew, look no further! 

The boat accommodates up to 6 guests on day fishing trips, while the overnight trips can take up to 4 visitors. To make your overnight trips super comfy and customized, the boat has a BBQ, hot pad burners and other appliances for cooking, cup holders, a dining table, plenty of cooler space, and a bathroom. If it gets too hot outside, there’s an air-conditioned cabin.

Your main targets will be Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Tuna, Spearfish, Mahi Mahi (Dorado) and Wahoo (Ono). The Hustler Team will also take you bottom fishing if discussed prior to the trip.  One of the best attributes of Kona Hawaii (besides its notoriously calm waters and pristine weather), is that you will be fishing right along the majestic volcanic coastline or just a few miles offshore.

Top of the line “Tournament Ready” Shimano and Penn IGFA fishing equipment (Spinners, 30s, 50s, 80s and 130s) are available on the boat at all times. If you need fly fishing or snorkeling equipment, just request it in advance. The crew will also provide your snacks and bottled water, but you can bring any other beverages and food you prefer. The Hustler Crew also offers Pre-Ordered Lunches as well as Hot BBQ lunches cooked fresh out on the water (Extra Cost).

The Hustler Sportfishing crew members are personable, knowledgeable, experienced fishermen, eager to make their guests happy. Safety, Customer Service, and Catching Fish is the name of the game! 

Catch Policy:
Keep all fish under 15 lbs. Cut and Filleted.
