Your Captain

Captain Will Rishell

Captain Will was born and raised in Connecticut where he developed a love for the outdoors while catching trout in wilderness streams and spending summers fishing off Rhode Island beaches. His first experience deep sea fishing in Hawaii was at the age of 9, on a family vacation to the Big Island of Hawaii. On that trip, Will and his family caught two shortbill spearfish and he discovered the allure of fishing in Hawaii’s waters. After graduating college at the University of Connecticut and a brief period working in the financial industry, Captain Will left for Oahu to pursue his dream of sportfishing in Hawaii.

Captain Will and the other members of our team specialize in offshore trolling for pelagic species including Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Blue Marlin, Wahoo and more. They share a love for fishing, a deep respect for the ocean, and take great joy in sharing their passion with others. We look forward to welcoming you aboard to share our love for Hawaii’s waters and experience the beauty and excitement they can provide.
