The Luckey Strike II is a 50 ft. Delta Marine sport fishing vessel. She is powered by twin 375 HP Caterpillar Diesel engines. She has a huge flying bridge, two electric toilets, deluxe fighting chair, and a roomy cabin. She is fully equipped with two Furuno Color fish finders, the latest Garmin GPS Chart Plotter, live bait tank, tuna tubes, radar, and radios. One of the largest and most comfortable boats on the island, the Luckey Strike II is the ONLY Coast Guard Certified fishing vessel in Lahaina harbor making her ideal for individual or large groups. Our most universal style of fishing in Hawaii is trolling with lures at 8 to 10 mph. Using this technique you can cover a very large area. The lures are on the surface and splash, dive, and create quite a lot of commotion behind the boat. All of our game fish swim in excess of 30 mph. and will hit the same lures so there is no particular lure for just Marlin or Mahi Mahi. Strikes doing this type of fishing are very exciting as even a small fish can pull quite a bit of line off a reel in a hurry. A large Marlin strike can be unbelievable as they can pull 600 to 900 yards of line in a matter of seconds. In contrast to lure fishing we also troll using live and rigged bait such as mackerel, small tuna, or squid. This type of fishing is done in a particular area such as a sea mount, fish aggregation devise (FAD), or drop off, as you can only run up to three lines and have to move very slowly. We also use a downrigger to get one bait down deep which can result in some great action. Light tackle bottom fishing is also available on private charters only. We offer 4, 6, and 8 hour trips on both boats and it would be my recommendation to try at least a six hour trip to give yourself time to get lucky. As with any kind of fishing timing is everything and the more time you spend the better chance you have of finding the big one.
