Ez Pickens is set up for serious big game fishing but has everything you would expect in a 5 star hotel but on the water. The luxury charter boat is a 2007 54' Hatteras with twin C-32 1650 hp Caterpillar motors that cruises at 34 knots. It is very well maintained and is spared no expense when equipping the boat and maintaining the custom tackle needed to catch big game fish off the Kona coast. We fish for blue marlin, stripe marlin, spearfish, ono, mahi mahi and ahi tuna all year round in Hawaii. We want to provide our guests and crew the best possible chance to hook and land a fish of a life time. At the end of the day the crew will fillet the fish for you to enjoy while on vacation. We are conveniently located in Honokohau Harbor between the airport and Kona. Ez Pickens is operated and maintained by Captain Chuck Wigzell, who owns a successful charter business of his own www.konacharterboat.com.

Blue marlin are caught year round off the coast of Kona Hawaii. A 1805 pound blue marlin is the largest fish ever caught in the world on rod and reel. Guess where it was caught, in Hawaii! Besides blue marlin Ez Pickens fishes for spearfish, tuna, mahi mahi and ono year round off the coast of Kona Hawaii.
One of the luxuries of deep sea fishing off the Big Island in Kona Hawaii is you do not have to go far to start fishing. It's 6,000 feet deep just 3 miles from shore. Plus two 13,000 foot volcanic mountains block the prevailing trade winds, which means its usually flat calm. No wonder why this is one of the top 5 big game fishing destinations in the world, flat calm water, big blue marlin and you start fishing 100 yards from shore. There is no other place like fishing in Kona in this in the U.S. or in the world.

Not only do we have a 5 star boat but Captain Chuck Wigzell would like to provide a 5 star fishing experience. So we included a continental breakfast, complimentary soft drinks and water. We do not provide alcohol but you may bring your own adult beverages if you would like. The captain and crew are very professional, friendly and experienced. They work great with people and their main goal is to provide a good opportunity to catch fish and make sure you have a fun day on the water.
The boat has all the amenities that you would expect in a boat this size. Air conditioned cabin, satellite TV, wireless internet, laptop, and 4 go pro’s to capture the action is just a few. A full list of the amenities is on the boat page. But the owners favorite and main reason why they decided to buy the 54′ Hatteras is the shaded mezzanine seating with cushions in the cockpit. This is a great place for the guests to sit and watch the lures or the fish battle and be a part of the action with the crew and anglers.
Captain Chuck Wigzell has been fishing out of Kona since 1995 and has had numerous tournament victory's and accomplishments!
