Private, South Maui sport fishing charters

Jun Ken Po’s comfortable interior includes a spacious salon with tinted windows, comfortable interior seating, a table, and a clean, modern marine head. There is also a stateroom below deck if someone feels like resting for a while.
Both vessel and equipment are maintained to the highest standards. Fishing gear includes:
- Shimano rods and reels
- Both light and heavy tackle
- fighting chair
- high-end color fish finders, GPS, and chart plotters
Jun Ken Po’s lead captain, Ryan Hall, was born and raised on Maui. He landed his first fish at the tender age of 6, and began working on fishing boats in 1984 when he was only 9 years old. Captain Ryan and his crew look forward to putting you on the fish and, of course, sharing their knowledge about living and fishing in Hawaii!
You’ll be trolling for mahi-mahi (dorado), ono (wahoo), ahi (tuna), and billfish (pacific blue marlin, striped marlin, short-nosed spearfish). Jun Ken Po is a proven catch boat, and has caught a number of granders in her day, but mahi mahi and ono are probably the most commonly caught fish here. They also carry lighter tackle, and enjoy deep-water jigging when conditions are right. Live bait is caught the morning of the charter when conditions allow.
The crew will be happy to cut up as much fish as you can reasonably eat while you’re here.
Jun Ken Po operates daily, year-round. Departure times are customizable, but they usually leave around 5:30am (the captain will reach out to you the day before your charter if he recommends leaving at a time other than what is stated on your confirmation). 8 and 10-hour charters are recommended as it may take a little longer to reach the most productive fishing areas.
The vessel is licensed for a maximum of 6 guests on fishing charters. The minimum recommended age is 12, however, children as young as 6 have been accommodated on the 6-hour trips on a case-by-case basis (call us at 808-344-3520 or email).
