We caught a mahi-mahi (very rare for this time of year) within 30 minutes. We caught a short nosed spear fish 2 hours in. Tiger was quick to help and give us direction. We were soooo excited! What an amazing day! Great boat, great crew!!! SO much fun!!!

Best part of the fishing trip was catching a Ono, had a tuna on 1st but it shook the hook loose. Whole trip was fantastic. Captain Bryan and Cody were very knowledgeable, professional and a real pleasure to be with. Would charter again with Bite Me Sport Fishing in Kona, Hawaii . Wife and I had a great time aboard the Bite Me 6, a 43 ft. Hatteras. Friday the 13th was a lucky day for us.

Wonderful day cruising around Kona ( Bite Me 3) with the bonus of catching a Blue Marlin! Beautiful boat with plenty of shade a nice couch to chill on and coolers with ice provide by the staff for drinks and food oh and a Bluetooth radio. Brooke and captain Andy where fantastic and coached me along the process of getting the fish in the boat! Couldn’t be happier. Hope to fish again soon with Bite Me!

Fantastic experience with Captain Brad and Aaron. Caught a wonderful Ono within 30 minutes. Absolute professionals who know what they are doing.

My sons went fishing a few weeks ago along with his wife and sister. They all had a blast! They chartered a half day and left bright and early in the morning. Crew on boat was great and my one son caught a 400-500 pound blue marlin. As it was too big, they had to release it but he had a great time fighting it and landing it. Unfortunately, that was the only fish they caught that day, weather was overcast and seas were up a bit due to storms. The price was great and the kids all had a great time. They would do it again in a heartbeat.

An amazing adventure! Captain Curtis, Judah & Victor each played a key role in one of the best days on the water. Captain Curtis was pro at everything from the command of his boat and crew to putting us in just the right spot to catch more than our share of fish. If that wasn't enough he spotter a whale shark as we were about to go back into the harbor. He made sure the Shark was safe by ordering all lines in fast and put us in an amazing position to get a close up look at this wonderful species.When all is said and done we caught a marlin, a yellow tail, two ono and a sail fish.I would recommend this boat again with out regret. Just don't expect to get as many fish ;)

Half-day charter was perfect - we had a few bites and landed a spearfish. Capt. Chad was great - thanks for filleting the spearfish and taking some great pics!

Captain Chad and his right hand man Sandy were fantastic! Our family group of five left early in the morning to hit the water before it got too warm, letting us focus on the fishing techniques Sandy taught us. Their boat was clean and roomy with an ice chest to keep our lunch cold. Both are very experienced and engaging. By 7:30am we had battled and caught a 120lb marlin and an 80lb yellow fin tuna. Although we didn’t get any more bites, the rest of the time relaxing on the boat was well spent. We took 20lbs of tuna home to the rest of our family, enjoying part of it grilled and part as tasty poke. Thanks for a great experience!

Had an amazing time on bite me 3 with Brian and Andy they were knowledgeable funny and social. Our boat mates were great shannon and Chuck,Trevor and Kieth they all were experienced fisherman as well so made for great conversation.thank you guys for a beautiful day on water!! **Looking at others reviews I think maybe they go in thinking they are going for a day of 100%catching and not fishing we had several bites and brought in a good sized ono.

Went out with captain Bradley and JJ, they were great. We caught some big fish and had a great experience. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
