    I can't say enough about this operation. Everything from the booking on the phone to the boats, captains, deckhands and especially the owner Doug who made sure that my 40th birthday in Hawaii was going to be a memory of a lifetime.

    I'm pretty much a hardcore bass fisherman but I must say that these are a lot more "serious" on getting the bite.

    We went on the 3:30am "extreme" trip that was the most challenging trip that I have ever taken. Leave the wife and kids at the pool because you are going to run where the fish are and it ain't no picnic. Thank god for Bonine for this Chicago flatlander.

    We were fishing dead bait caught earlier in the morning by Capt. Patrick and got some action within an hour on the FAD. Patrick is a master at driving that boat and making it work for you to land the fish. He knows what to say and when to say it. Our deck hand Brandon also did a great job re-rigging and bagging the fish.

    Overall the bite was slow but hey we were fishing with the best. I did a lot of searching on what company was the most likely gonna give me the best bang for my buck and I got more for what I bargained for.

    Thanks again to the entire Start Me Up family. I can't wait to tell everyone back in Illinois about this experience

    Living in Chicago made me a banana. Yellow on the outside and white on the inside.

    My wife is also "puti". I still get my fix of some good home cooking from my mom and aunt here
