Our trip with “Start Me Up” was fantastic. We booked two days of fishing, the first day was very tough fishing, but the second day our captain Alan hooked us up with two striped marlin that we tagged and released at the boat. It was my first marlin and also my friends first marlin. A trip we will never forget, a beautiful boat, great captain and crew. I would highly recommend to anyone.
We would like to contact Capt. Doug and express our thanks for the great time we had with you guys both days we went out. Thanks to Jimmy and Capt. Alan for the fun of catching the 2 striped marlins and the mahi-mahi.We hope the memory lasts til our next trip there.

We just returned from our vacation in Maui and it was beautiful. Thank you for setting us up with Start Me Up, Alan and Jim were great. I (Lesley) caught a 275 lb. Blue Marlin. That was an awsome experience! It took me an hour to reel it in and boy was my arm tired. I couldn’t move the next day! We are having it mounted and I should get it in about 3 months (my husband didn’t have the heart to tell me no!) Thanks again and we would highly recommend Start Me Up to anyone else, I couldn’t have done it without the help of Alan and Jim.

I went out on “Start Me UP” on Nov 5. I had a great time. There were three of us on the boat and we all caught a fish. I caught a 27 pound mahi mahi. We also caught a 34 pound mahi mahi and 175/200 pound marlin (tagged and released) What a day! The captain and first mate were 1st class and really worked for us to get us to the fish. Once again thanks and please pass this on to the captain and mate of “Start Me Up”.
Went out Sunday with Doug and Jimmy on Start Me Up. Had a great time. Kids each got to bring in a mahi mahi. Boat was clean and well equipped. Doug and Jimmy were very professional and friendly. Their love of fishing really showed.

Thank you! We had a fantastic time on an incredible boat and crew. I have been on numerous Salmon Charters here at home, but the crew aboard Start Me Up was the best. While on our charter, Kyle played a 100lb+ Blue Marlin on 12lb test line (we were fishing for live bait at the time!) for over 20 minutes before it bit off. Kyle later hooked and landed a 55″ 24lb Mahi-Mahi that we are having mounted as memento of the great time we had.
Nancy and I had a great time. We didn’t personally catch anything, but a guy on our “share” landed a 553 lb. Blue Marlin. Quite a sight to see. The boat and crew were everything you advertised. Will try it again next time we’re lucky enough to have an opportunity to visit Maui.
