Capt Dee Bradford (owner/operator)
Captain Dee Bradford has owned and operated HighNoon Charters for the past 25 years. Dee began fishing in Kona during the early 80's and hasn't stopped since. Featured in such media as the prestigious Marlin Magazine and Deep Sea Fishing Network, Captain Bradford started his commercial charter business in 1993 and since then has built HighNoon into one of the most successful charter businesses in Kona. He enjoys showing his anglers the nuances of Kona fishing....ie, describing the underwater terrain, the ledges and bouys where smaller fish congregate, demonstrating the fish finders and chart plotters which help immensely in finding fish. Captain Bradford has three 900 lb plus Blue Marlin to his credit. He is open to having his clients help clear lines on a big fish and helping with the catch. On HighNoon, you are not just a spectator but an integral part of the fishing experience.
"Kona Sport Fishing is something special and we will do everything possible to ensure that your Kona fishing charter is the highlight of your trip to the Big Island of Hawaii."
Captain Trevor Child has been fishing in Kona waters for over 10 years. Raised in Hawaii, Trevor's dedication and enthusiasm about big game fishing is second to none.
