The best deep sea fishing in Maui departs from Lahaina Harbor. Once a bustling whale town with busy docks, unruly saloons, Lahaina was the sailors port of call during the whaling days. Lahaina has a rich history of fishing on Maui.  From the very first Hawaiians who settled Maui to today, the fishing history of Lahaina runs deep. Start Me Up has been fishing Maui waters longer than most. Their Maui sportfishing awards have grown considerably through the years. Year after year Start Me Up has been a leader among Maui charter boats for catching fish. They have led in every category.  From weight caught to marlins brought in by their guests, Start Me Up has proven to be a tough competitor in the Maui fishing industry.

Six-hour share boat charters are about perfect for an experience in deep sea fishing on Maui. They aren’t too long. yet long enough to reach the deep shelves where the catchable fish usually are. Most of the good fishing spots on Maui lie beyond the southern coast of Lanai the in open ocean. A six-hour share will get you there, increasing your chances of catching a fish. Charter boats that depart from Lahaina Harbor get there quicker with a much smoother ride than the small boat harbor in Maalaea.

When selecting a fishing charter on Maui, most anglers opt for the least expensive charter. Before making your decision, you should look at their fishing record and experience of the crew. Those are the two most important item to research before scheduling a fishing charter. This will give you a good understanding of the dedication and passion for fishing of the charter boat company. You can ask around the harbor or make calls before you arrive to get a better understanding of this.

Start Me up has state of the art boats. Each is a Bertram class sport fisher with all the amenities to keep you comfortable during the day. Like all charter boats in Maui, Start Me Up will provide the ice, ice chest, all the bait, music and a frig. Each boat is equipped with a restroom and kitchen.

One thing to remember about fishing in Maui, it’s called fishing because your catch is not guaranteed by the charter boat. We wish you good luck and hope your dreams of reeling in the big one come true on Maui. The best thing to remember is if you are staying in a condo, you would want to schedule your Maui fishing trip during the first couple of days you are on the island. The theory behind this is you can enjoy fresh fish from at your condo all week long. Certainly beats paying the high prices that the restaurants command and the overpriced per pound at the grocery store.

Start Me Up was the first Maui charter boat company to allow their guest to keep their catch. They will clean and filet your fish. Hmm… Fresh filet fish for dinner! Showing your appreciation by tipping the boat is a good thing.

It seemed like the crew really were just doing a job and nothing more. Went before and they used live bait and we caught lots on a 4 hour trip. This time we went in a 6 hour trip and didn't catch anything. Summer(the first mate) said if we went for 12 hours and farther out we would have caught more. Catfish(the captain) seemed to be happy to get us off the boat and the crew seem more interested in the Gartuitiues then anything else. I wouldn't recommend it or ever go again!

Born & raised fishing and i don’t think I have had a worse 8 hour fishing trip ever.

Not only was i forced into an 8 hour fishing trip because they only care about sending out full boats. I’m 90% positive the Captain and his deck wanted to smoke cigarettes more than they wanted to change the lure.

We caught 6 fish between 6 guys. Largest fish was 12 inches. .75 boring fish / hour.

They basically begged us to give them a tip and that we let them keep the fish so they could sell it at the market.

My opinion? You would have better luck fishing off the cliffs of your hotel.

Poor fishing experience with Start Me Up Fishing on July 25th. Captain and crew didn't seem interested in catching fish. No live bait on boat. Crew only changed one line in 8 hours of fishing! I basically paid for a boat ride. Crew only traveled at 7 miles per hour out of harbor. Took way to long to reach deep ocean for Marlin fishing. Never again for me.

We had an amazing trip with captain John and deckhand Josh. We hooked a gorgeous mahi mahi. The boat was perfect. The crew was fast and knowledgeable. The experience was breathtaking.

Whilst I understand that fishing is a sport in which you don't always get a result you can certainly increase your chances by trying out different tactics. We trolled for 4 hours straight, that means we sat in the boat whilst it chugged along at 10 knots dragging lines behind it in the hope something might bite. It might have been nice to try some bait fishing or just something else and got the customers a little more involved. Lack of effort from the crew and lack variety in tackle and tactics is behind my low score. 4 Hours, no fish!!
