We believe you will not find a more  experienced, harder working and more professional sport fishing team, fishing Hawaii or elsewhere in the Pacific. Using only the finest tournament quality Penn and Shimano tackle, having extensive local knowledge of where the fish are at any given time of the year and what kind of bait should be used for the most action is what makes Captain Dave Hudson’s Fishing Team the Finest Deep Sea Fishing Team since 1973!

“One moment you’re just relaxing and enjoying the peaceful beauty of the Pacific Ocean, lazily listening to the conversation of your companions and the lulling drone of the powerful engines.

The next moment, utter pandemonium breaks loose the high-pitched whine of the line uncoiling from a almost smoking reel, the scramble to strap into the fighting chair, the first glimpse of a silver and blue adversary far behind the boat. Fish On!”

Welcome to Sportfishing Finest Kind style!
