Meet Our Fishers


The seafood that we provide only comes directly from the fishers, so you can be sure that your seafood is fresh and caught locally. This shortened supply chain also ensures a fair wage in exchange for the freshest fish possible. We source from those who fish in a pono way, meaning they abide by the State regulations, seasonality of species, and fish using a sustainable method.

Our hui of fishers is always growing - all fishers may not be listed and all fishers listed may not be currently fishing.

Jared Dow
Vessel: Flyer

Bio:Hi there, Captain Jared Dow here with Flyer Sportfishing, on Oahu’s North Shore. I first started fishing in Hawai’i the day I moved here from Santa Barbara, CA in 97′. I’ll never forget that day. A Blue Marlin, 5 Mahi Mahi, a big Ahi, Aku and a Ono on the way home! I was blown away! I couldn’t believe there was such a job as good as this and told the Captain to sign me up. Fate had it they needed help right away and so it began. I fished here in Hawaii for about 8 years, then decided to fish the World to learn different fisheries techniques. After meeting my wife Saya, we decided to move back and start our own business and raise our family. I love eating fish every which way and its my life. Mahalo for enjoying the fish I caught!

Vessel
: Ohana H

Bio: I grew up in the Islands of Hawaii and I am a Third generation fisherman in my family, and the Pacific Ocean became a part of me from the beginning. Learning and mastering both old and new techniques from the old masters and integrating new technologies, fishing here is a love and art to me. I captained my first boat when I was 12yrs old fishing for Aku (Skipjack Tuna) back in the late 70s and haven't stopped since. Today my operation prides its self on fish care, quality and freshness almost to an extreme.

Joe Soares
Vessel: Haunani- 24 foot Saltwater, 1987

Bio: I fish mostly along the Waianae Coast on the Island of Oʻahu. The types of fishing I do is primarily trolling and live baiting, also do shallow bottom and papio trolling with the kids for fun. Fishing brings peace of mind and relaxation. Anticipation of what you will find or what you will catch always leaves you craving more no matter what the out come of the trip.

Ryan Hopper
Vessel: Grand Slam

Bio: “It’s more than fishing. It’s a lifestyle.” I am a life-long fisherman and native of Florida, and have spent the past 10 years captaining the Grand Slam, a charter fishing boat on the North Shore of Oahu. I hold a Master Captains license as well as a PADI Divemaster certification. I have been very successful fishing in tournaments as I know all the tricks to get the fish on your line and in the fish box! I have experience catching all species of in-shore and off-shore Florida fishing, the Bahamas, Alaskan Salmon, and all of the Hawaiian Island waters.

I have both half day and full day charters, visit http://grandslamhawaii.com/ for more information.

Deep Sea is the third boat that I have owned and operated out of Haleiwa. I am a very involved owner and captain.

Kekoa Seward
Vessel: Ku Mana

Bio: Aloha, My name is Kekoa Seward, Fishing is a passion and way of life. Having grown up in Hawaii, fishing is integral to our culture and survival. As a Native Hawaiian I feel very passionate about protecting our oceans as well as being able to sustainably harvest from them. We specialize in hook and line fishing for Ahi and Mahimahi which reduces by catch to almost zero. We take great pride in the quality of our fish and treat every one as if I were feeding it to my own family.
