Stand-up sport fishing, Maui Hawaii
The 33′ Boston Whaler Outrage “Social Distancing” operates seasonal whale-watching tours, sunset cruises, and of course, Maui sport fishing charters. Departing daily from Lahaina Harbor, Maui Hawaii, this nearly new center console vessel is the ideal choice for anglers and adventurers in search of a challenge. This is stand-up fishing at its best.
Fishing charters leave the dock at 4 am, so be prepared to board around 3:45 am. You can expect to arrive back to Lahaina Harbor between 11 am and noon on full-day trips, but sometimes they run longer if the bite is exceptionally “hot”.
Depending on the weather, most fishing trips involve a 20-35 mile run offshore to one of Maui’s Fish Aggregation Devices, or “FADs”. Using a combination of live bait, dead bait, and trolling lures, fast-moving pelagic game fish such as mahi-mahi (dorado), yellowfin and big eye tuna (ahi), striped and blue marlin, spearfish, and an occasional ono (wahoo) can be found. Fish caught usually range in size from 9 to over 40 lbs. The trolling trip back to Lahaina is always different. En route, the crew will point out any dolphins, whales, and other marine life you might be lucky enough to come across. 6-hour charters are also possible, but it’s the full-day trips that offer the best chance of success.
Center console “CC’s” fishing is sometimes a bit more of an adventure than the cabin sportfishing boats. “CC’s” are open to the elements and they often fish in wind and waves that spray water on guests. We recommend that you dress appropriately to enjoy this unique experience.
While the vessel is licensed for up to 6 guests, Social Distancing limits groups to no more than 3 on fishing charters for comfort, safety, and speed!
- Clean, and well maintained
- Twin outboards
- Cushioned seating
- Aft sun shade
- Enclosed head (bathroom)
- Shimano and Penn reels
- “Tsunomo” lures
