Maria catches best looker of the day!

Wow – What a great afternoon on the water with UFO Adventures Light-Tackle Fishing Charter!  My Family was looking for something fun to do on the water but didn’t want to commit a whole day to the adventure so they hooked up (pun intended) with  UFO Adventures Light-Tackle Fishing Charter for an awesome afternoon!  Unlike the traditional fishing charters UFO operates in the calm waters close to shore and has morning and afternoon departures which makes it ideal for Families with children ages 3 and up.  It’s also great for serious Fishermen who want to land Maui’s inshore game fish.  My sister Maria landed an almost neon blue and green reef fish but it had to be returned to the water but at least the proof is in the picture that she had a catch.

Next my mom Carla pulled in a small one which turned out to be a very tasty fish called a Nabeta.  The boats fishing legend and super helpful Mate, Johnny Pender told them that it’s considered a delicacy which is cooked whole and it gets its sweet flavor from it’s diet of crab and other tasty treats.  Finally, my cousin Kevin pulled in the Big One a 3lb Uku which is a Hawaiian grey snapper!  If you’ve ever been out to a restaurant here on Maui you know how much a filet of fresh caught snapper costs and it was ours for Free because on UFO fishing charters you get to keep your catch and they’ll even get it ready to cook for you!maui locals guide, ufo fishing

Oh I forgot to mention, it wasn’t only a fishing charter it turned out to be an Awesome Whale Watch as well!  If this sounds like the type of Local Fun you would like to have on your visit to Maui.  Give as a call at Maui Locals Guide and we’ll set you up with a truly unique experience!
