Catching Your Fish and Eating It, Too (at Oahu)


From our Go Visit Hawaii facebook community, I was recently asked if I knew of a deep sea fishing charter from Oahu that cooks the fish that you catch. Since I don’t fish, I had to do a little research. I learned quite a bit along the way.

I found it to be a bit odd that all fish caught from a charter boat belongs to the captain. So, you may catch a  whopper of a fish and never even taste it. But, that’s the way it is for the vast majority of deep sea fishing charters in Hawaii.

I consulted my twitter pals to see if they knew of any Oahu fishing charter company that allows you to have/cook your own fish. @l3379lad180r suggested I check into Shack Attack. I checked out their website, and yes, they will cook your catch plus you’ll also get to take up to 20lbs of your catch with you. Per their website, that is “something almost unheard of in the sport fishing charter industry!”

Does anyone else have a recommendation for charter fishing boats around Oahu that allow you to sample what you catch?

  1. I’m glad you mentioned the weight of the fish. I need a boat that can handle a heavy haul. I plan on bringing back a couple hundred pounds of fish.
