 A'u Struck Fishing Charters welcomes you to the Big Island of Hawaii and to the Kona coast where big game fishing got it's start and where it still remains a world class destination for all anglers looking for a chance at the fish of a lifetime.

We have the lowest rates for a twin diesel sportfisher in the entire Kona fleet!


Owned and operated by Capt. Rich Youngs, the boat has been chartering the Kona waters since 1996 while Rich has been fishing here for the past 10 years. He knows how to catch fish!


 30' Precision flybridge sportfisher with top quality rods and reels, fighting chair, plenty of comfortable seating and working head.

Twin diesel engines for safe, secure fishing enjoyment on a great fish catching boat at an extrordinarily affordable price.

Why pay the high price when we catch the same as the pricey charters?



Our Charter rates are a bargain for what you get:


1/2 Day =  $325* (4 hours)

3/4 Day =  $400*  (6 hours)

Full Day = $475* (8 hours)

*4% Hawaii tax will be added for all credit card transactions


Charters are for up to 5 people and prices are for the whole boat not per person!


A deckhand may be on board for assistance and safety. Tipping for the deckhand is discretionary (usually 10-20%).


We'll have ice, bait and tackle, complementary water, drinks and snacks on board. You should bring food, drinks, and sunscreen, etc. for your own use as well.



Fishing starts at 6:30AM

You need to be at the launch ramp by 6:15AM


Call Rich @ 808-640-4181 to reserve your spot





When we do catch fish:

Our policy is to clean one (or some) of the caught fish for your personal consumption. We'll clean and bag it for you right there at the boat when we get back from our trip. The amount of fish you'll take home varies on the size and quantity of fish caught but generally amounts to what you think you'll want to eat while you're here on vacation (generally from 5 to 20 lbs. of cleaned fish.)


The remainder of the fish will stay with the boat.
