Overview

Cherry Pit is a 32' Force built in Hawaii for Hawaii waters. Bought in 2016, Cherry Pit is a major upgrade from our original boat. Owned and operated by Capt. Bobby Cherry. With a lifetime of experience Capt. Bobby knows the waters off the Kona coast as good as anyone. Here's a typical day on the Cherry Pit... start the day by catching bait, 10-20 opelu (mackerel) then we'll put the lures out and troll for Marlin, Ahi, Mahi-mahi and Ono while we keep our eyes peeled for Ahi schools and Mahi-mahi schools. That's when we start using our live bait, which will greatly increase our chances of catching these fish. Once we've caught our share we'll put the lures back out and troll home.
