Captain Chuck Wigzell has spent the last 25 years running charters out of Kona, Hawaii, and has been fishing for a living since he graduated college with a Hotel/Restaurant resort management degree in 1995. In 2019 Captain Chuck caught 200 blue marlin in a single year, he is the only captain in Kona to accomplish this huge number. He spent his college summers fishing for his family's restaurant aboard his dad's boat and was inspired to start running charters after he graduated. Two decades on, he still catches fish for his parents' restaurant, Pancho & Lefty’s, and you can have your own catch cooked there for a great after-trip meal. Doing so offers you a 20% discount and a meal you won’t forget.
