The Marjorie Ann, operated by Maui Fun Charters, is a 36′ Chesapeake Bay Deadrise that specializes in nearshore Maui bottom fishing. Trips depart at 7:30am 6 days per week from Maalaea Harbor, which is convenient to Kihei, Wailea, and Kahului. Marjorie Ann’s 4 hour bottom fishing trips are operated Sunday through Friday, and are ideal for individuals and groups, including families with school-aged children.
The vessel is equipped with an marine head (bathroom), a fish finder, gps, a spacious back deck with plenty of seating, and fishing tackle for both shallow and deep water bottom fishing. Marjorie Ann also carries heavier tackle to troll for pelagic gamefish while underway to and from their Maui bottom fishing spots.
Marjorie Ann is licensed to carry up to 18 passengers, but to keep things comfortable, they limit the guest count to 10 (maximum 8 anglers).
No experience? No problem! Marjorie Ann’s friendly, knowledgable crew are happy to provide plenty of instruction and encouragement for first time anglers. The small number of passengers also allows the opportunity to try a greater variety of fishing styles including deep water bottom fishing when conditions allow.
On Maui bottom fishing trips you are invited to keep the fish you catch. There’s amazing flavor packed into some of Maui’s Hawaiian reef fish. The crew will point out the tastiest fish to you, and filet your fish before the morning’s out. Some of the hotels have been known to prepare your catch for you, but ask the crew. This changes often.
