Who we are
Catchem1 is owned and operated by our very own Captain Chuck Haupert. Chuck has decades of experience and has been featured in magazines such as Marlin, Salt Water Sportsman and Sport Fishing to name just a few. He’s also appeared on television in the hit show Inside Big Game Fishing and has been fishing in and around Kona since 1976. “Besides getting older, I like to think I’m getting a little better”
What we do
The Catchem is a 30′ Force – “built in Hawaii to fish Hawaiian waters”. Powered by twin Cummins turbo-diesels she is clean, comfortable, fast, & tournament equipped.The wahaine (lady) anglers should be comfortable in knowing we have the nicest “head” in the fleet.
Kona is famous for calm waters and BIG fish. Within minutes of the harbor anglers have the opportunity to catch Blue Marlin and Striped Marlin, Short-nosed Spearfish, Large Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi-Mahi, Wahoo, Skipjack Tuna, and an occasional Sailfish.
Kona is a very special place!
What we belIeve
We believe in supporting and participant within our local community. A few organizations we have worked with in the past:
– Wounded warriors
– Make a wish
Over the past three years Catchem has been in the top five Kona charter boats in fish tagged and released. We also offer custom taxidermy work for those anglers who desire to mount their fish (which can also be done for tagged fish).
