This website was first developed in 1997 by my husband, Capt. Mike Crawford, a Hawaii sport fishing veteran and self-professed curmudgeon, and myself - a website designer and mother of two.
Over the years, Mike fought hundreds of marlin, mahimahi, ono and other Hawaii game fish. He owned his own fishing business for 7 years (Rhythm & Blues Sportfishing) out of Maalaea Harbor but gave that up when our son was born in lieu of the more rewarding job as "Mr. Mom". ....guess what... he discovered that being a domestic engineer is harder than landing a 500lb. blue marlin!
Sadly, Mike passed away in October, 2012 after a battle with cancer.
After 22 years of working by his side, I have taken up the helm, managing this website, answering emails, and booking Maui fishing charters. Please don't hesitate to write!
“Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary.”
