Die Hard Sport Fishing is owned/operated by the infamous Captain Fuzzy.
The 38′ Bertram sportfisher “Die Hard” regularly leaves before the bars close. A champion boat for mahi mahi and ahi, captain Fuzzy and his crew fish hard. This is not a trip for the feint of heart. Their main goal is to put you on the fish, even if it means leaving earlier, driving farther, or fishing rougher water. It’s as close as you’ll come to a commercial fishing operation on Maui.
Captain Fuzzy Alboro prefers to fish with live bait, and the Die Hard is usually well stocked. If not, they’ll try and catch some on the way out. It could take some time to get to where the captain wants to be, but once he and his crew find “the spot” (which changes daily), be ready for all hell to break loose!
Of course, no charter is ever guaranteed, no matter how early you leave, how long you fish for or how good the captain is. Fishing is fishing, after all. But Die Hard’s catch rate tends to be higher than those boats leaving at a more reasonable hour.
Die Hard’s gear includes:
- 80 Shimano’s with bent butt rods
- 50 Shimano’s with stand up rods
- 30 Shimano’s Penn stand up rods
- fighting chair
- Fish Finder, GPS chart plotter
- marine head (toilet)
- plenty of shade
- microwave and fridge
If you’re serious about hunting big game fish while on Maui, and you don’t mind leaving in the middle of the night, then Die Hard Sport Fishing is the boat for you.
Due to the possibility of rougher sea conditions, we recommend Die Hard passengers take an anti nausal before the trip. See https://fishmaui.com/avoiding-seasickness
