A second generation charter boat captain, Randy Parker has literally been raised on sport fishing boats in Kona, Hawaii. His IGFA Hall of Fame recipient father, Captain George Parker, caught the first IGFA documented Pacific Blue Marlin “Grander” in the Hawaiian waters in November of 1954.
Randy followed in his fathers footsteps and has become one of Kona’s most notable Captains. Randy’s tournament wins are enviable, placing in the top positions in many Billfish tournaments in Hawaii and Cabo San Lucas Mexico during his career. He has landed two fish over 1000 pounds (Granders), a 1174.5 Pacific Blue Marlin caught on April 8, 2002, and a 1045 lb Pacific Blue Marlin on July 12, 2001.
Randy’s attention to detail shows on board the Wild Hooker, where every aspect of the boat and tackle is in pristine condition and in perfect operating order.
Capt Randy has also fished many great fishing “Hot Spots” including the Great Barrier Reef, Madeira, Ghana, and Mexico to name a few.
