Captain James Dean
It has been my good fortune to be the Captain of the beautiful Blue Hawaii for 25 years. Mike Jacobsen offered me the opportunity of a lifetime; to fish in the same harbor as some of the worlds greatest marlin fisherman. Some of the greats have come and gone, many are still here. Much gratitude to these men, whom I admire and respect, for the knowledge they have shared with me. I have been fishing these Hawaiian waters for 31 years and the learning never stops.
Our guests come from all walks of life. This is truly the best part of my occupation; getting to meet the people that come aboard. Many life long friendships have been developed. They say choose a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life. I am living the dream.
In the years of captaining the Blue Hawaii I have won tournaments, caught many trophy Blue Marlin, Yellow Fin Tuna, Mahi Mahi and Wahoo. Some of which are hanging on walls in client’s homes. I keep a photo album on the boat and would be happy to share it with you and tell you fish tales as we wait for the bite. My crew and I enjoy sharing our fishing passion with you. My crew is highly trained and proficient in all aspects of fishing.
Each Marlin feels like the first. Every catch comes with it’s own story and life long memories are made. Fishing with a seasoned angler has its benefits, but guiding a new angler and experiencing their first big catch with them never gets old. Reeling in any of our Billfish is just as exciting. Angling a large Tuna can be as much of a challenge as a Blue Marlin.
