Passengers meet at Maui’s Maalaea harbor. Upon departure Strike Zone’s crew will familiarize passengers with the vessel, and then typically set some sport fishing lines and troll for big game fish en route to one of a number of bottom fishing destinations off Maui’s southwest coast. Hopefully, guests will get to help reel in a mahi mahi or ono!
Once Strike Zone has reached their fishing destination, the vessel will either drift and then assist guests with their lines. Anglers are invited to keep all the fish they catch bottom fishing. The captain and crew will give you let you know which are the tastiest, and provide tips as to the best way to cook them too! Just be sure to ask.

Strike Zone Fishing Reviews
Best time of my life
This was the best experience ever the crew led by Dana was amazing friendly helpful and knowledgeable I will do this again next trip to Maui
I caught the biggest fish of our trip a goat fish
The day was perfect and we saw many whales as well thank you guys you are awesome
Had A Blast
Junior and his crew are awesome! Loved going out with them on Sunday the 7th of March. My oldest got picked in the lottery to land the Mahi Mahi that we hooked up with while trolling to the fishing grounds. Caught 15 keepers as well on the bottom drift fishing. Great Trip. Great Boat. Great Crew!
My wife and I had a great time! The crew, Junior, Derek and Jack were extremely knowledgeable and quick to assist. I highly recommend Strike Zone for all ages and experience levels. Love that any fish we did not take home will be donated to those in need.
We just returned from our fishing trip on the Strike Zone in September 2017. Our reserved "4 hour bottom fishing" excursion was misleading. After you troll for sport fish one hour out and one hour back, this leaves you with only 2 hours of bottom fishing. This was not told to me when booking with a live agent nor does it say on the website. Very disappointing.
They saved us
The crew of the Strike Zone saved us in April of 2006 when our cruise ship shore excursion of kayaking off Olowalu did not react as we were swept out to sea in high winds, strong currents and high waves. We bounced around for several hours before we spotted the Strike Zone. They LITERALLY saved our lives. Then they did everything they could to take care of us, getting back safely and then back to our group. So gracious and kind. So knowledgeable. We are forever grateful.
Had an amazing trip! All the crew were awesome. Will do it again soon I hope.
Thank you Captain
Had a Blast; Met Family!
My husband and I fished with "the young crew," Junior, Jordan, and Chris. Those guys were totally awesome. The fishing was fun, hard work at times, and thrilling. Nearly everyone on the boat caught multiple fish, including a couple larger ones toward the end. The crew cleaned up our fish so we could take it home and cook it up for dinner. So good. The fishing was worth it, but the crew made the entire stay on Maui amazing. It was like meeting family. Junior talked with us the whole time, sharing stories and recommendations for food and friends. We cannot gush enough about how great they are! Can't wait to get back to Maui you guys! Mahalo!
Bottom fishing with Strike Zone
It was a great half day out. The crew are very professional and obviously keen fishermen. I caught 7 or 8 fish on the trip; none were big, but there was a good variety of species. Thanks for your recommendation that I book with them. I‘d definitely recommend Strike Zone to anyone looking to go bottom fishing on Maui.
Great fun with kid
Great fishing trip!
I took my 8-year son for a 6 hour bottom fish trip and we had great time.
We were spoilt with awesome whale watching on the Maui waters and caught a tuna when trolling on route to the fishing spot. Awesome bonuses!
Bottom fishing was very well organized and we caught many fishes.
The team was really professional and interested in us spending good time.
Thanks to Fish Maui for arranging this!
The fish that got away
If you have limited time to go fishing in Maui this is the charter to choose. The reservation process with Lili Crawford was a breeze. The crew (Captain Jr and Carl) were very professional and friendly.
Ten minutes into our trolling we caught a 7lb mahi mahi which made us excited about catching more. When we reached the first fishing area we started catching some keeper fish (I forgot the names). After several locations Junior took us to spot where he said we might catch Papio. But it was slow so he told us to reel it up so we could move to better spot.
As we were reeling up our reels my wifes pole suddenly got a big bite which made it bend like it was going to break. Carl immediately knew it was a big papio so he grabbed the net while my wife was reeling it in. Unfortunately, as she was trying hard to land the big fish, the line snapped! It was a heartbreaker! But was exciting.
We ended up taking home several medium sized fish for dinner that night. We had fun. Great trip.
