Captain Freed is an experienced, professional fisherman and charter captain based in Oahu, Hawaii.

His unparalleled expertise and knowledge allow him to take customers on an unforgettable deep-sea fishing experience.
The Pamela Pearl is a 35 ft. Bertram was named after Captain Freed’s mom – the matriarch of this fishing family. All aboard will feel her spirit as they take off on their adventure. The boat is built for fishing with a flybridge, livewell and plenty of room for six anglers to fish without tangled lines. With its luxurious features of a salon with sofa and sleeper beds for resting after a long battle with the fish of your dream, it’s no wonder why so many visitors to Haleiwa choose to go out on this vessel for their fishing trips.
Oahu deep sea fishing charters are a great way to experience the incredible variety of fish species you can find in the Hawaiian waters. The main target species include Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Ono, Yellowfin (Ahi) and Skipjack Tuna (Aku), all providing an exciting challenge for any angler. Nearshore bottom fishing charters offer anglers a chance to catch more than a dozen species of fish in local waters. Species commonly targeted include goatfish, jacks, wrasse, triggers, snappers and amberjacks.
Captain Freed is very knowledgeable about the area where you will be fishing and knows many techniques to put you on the fish. Before fishing, you will catch baitfish, usually mackerel, then head out for your day. For nearshore fishing, he uses light tackle to target a wide variety of reef fish. When going offshore, trolling and high-speed trolling at the six FADs are the two main techniques utilized. Captain Freed knows what bait to get the fish biting to make your day on the water full of action and exhilaration.
There are two charter options; half-day and full-day. With the fishing grounds not that far offshore, even on a half-day charter, you still get a lot of fishing in. You will head towards the FADs, get your lines in, and look for a battle. But if you want something a little calmer, going on a half-day reef fishing charter is excellent for families but still filled with action and fun. Full-day charters are for those that want to spend the day out fighting with some of the largest pelagic fish on the planet. Captain Freed also offers overnight charters.
30-130 class Pen rods and reels and top-line tackle are provided. Bring some sunscreen, a hat, polarized sunglasses, a camera and a great attitude because you are in for a day you will never forget. Beverages and food are not provided, so you will need to bring your own. After docking, the crew will fillet your fish for your dinner table or a local restaurant to prepare a delicious meal for you.
