Captains Biographies:

Name: Michael De Rego

Born location: Honolulu, Hawaii

Experience in years and locations fishing: Over 40 years throughout the state of Hawaii, 36 of which have been as captain.

Favorite fishing story with company: We were live baiting one day with 2 small skipjack tuna off Oahu. After an hour or so, we get bit and the fish pulls a lot of line very inconsistently. As we fight the fish, I realize something is wrong, probably a dead billfish. However to my surprise we had captured two striped marlin on the same line! The first fish ate the tuna; the second got the leader wrapped around his bill. They both pulled against each other, eventually drowning each other.

Favorite fish dish and recipe: seared ahi (Yellow Fin Tuna) using any Cajun spices especially Chef Paul’s.

Favorite fish to catch and why: Mahi-mahi. Because they are so social and highly active. They are aggressive, great schoolers, acrobatic and probably the most beautiful fish. They are great fighters and multiple hits are common. Probably the most fun for our clients.

Any special awards or achievements:

  • Winner of the Lahaina Jackpot four times, including the first all female team to win the Lahaina Jackpot.
  • Placed second in the prestigious World Billfish Challenge in Kona, Hawaii
  • Placed in the top three in the Ahi Fever Tournament on Oahu, which normally features over 200 boats annually.

Name: Darryl Chow

Born Location: Honolulu, HI

Experience in years and fishing locations: 30 years professional fishing experience throughout the Hawaiian Islands, 28 as Captain of the Seahawk off Oahu. I am also a fishing guide during the summer months fishing the waters of Southeast Alaska for Salmon and Halibut.

Favorite Fishing Story with Company: Being on-board with the Boss (Mike) and the gang returning home from a fishing tournament in Kona. We caught a total of 3 Blue Marlin, 169 Mahi-Mahi, 12 Wahoo, Aku and Shibi too. That was a “once in a lifetime” catch and what a fun day it was.

Favorite Fish to Catch and Why: Mahi-Mahi because it is one of the best tasting fish we catch.

Favorite Fish Dish and Recipe: Take a few pieces of Mahi-Mahi, season to taste and roll in flour; on medium heat only sauté fish with white wine, capers and a little butter for 1-1 ½ minutes per side. When done, cut and squeeze a lemon over pieces of fish.

Any special awards or achievements: Largest fish caught so far is a 934 lb. Pacific Blue Marlin, still waiting for the “Grander”.
