Lee Cochran is a resident of Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. He writes about Big Island fishing adventures with the Kona Family Fishing Fleet.

There are those that take the time to create an experience for their clients regardless of fish caught. They maintain an engaging conversation and listen to the type of fishing the client desires and adopting those into the trip. They also pay a great deal of attention to any children on board, knowing that their experience on board is paramount to the parents.

The other type of captain was one who was hesitant to answer questions, did not take the time to get to know their guests, or even interested in learning what their fishing preferences were for the day. They view their trip as a success if they were able to catch a big fish, with no regard for how much the guests had enjoyed themselves aboard their boat.

This obvious difference in the types of captain/crew chosen for our group of charter fishing operations was the degree of service oriented experience and their sincere consideration of their customers time on the water vs. placing more importance in catching a large marlin.

From a list of over sixty boats we were able to put together a list of twenty-three operations that he felt were high quality operations. From there, interviews were conducted with the twenty-three captains and the list was narrowed to the best operations we felt we had for creating a Kona fishing experience on every trip. These are boats that we felt could guarantee a great experience for our guests and ensured a positive start-up for Kona Family Fishing Charters reputation.
