We would like to WELCOME you aboard our 36’ Hatteras sport fisher the Carol Ann. Operated by local owner and Coast Guard licensed Captain Ed Horner. Captain Ed has spent over 15 years commercial fishing  on our beautiful South and West shores, around Kauai and the "forbidden" island of Ni’ihau.  His skill, knowledge and expertise come from a family history of fishermen's, where he learned to fish commercially on his own at an early age of 15.   

Open Sea History

With 30 years of family experience behind the technique of his fishing, Captain Ed Horner opened Open Sea Charter Fishing in 1991. The business barely had time to establish when Hurricane Iniki hit the island and made extensive damages to the vessel Carol Ann. After four years of commercial fishing, rebuilding and refitting the Carol Ann with new twin Cummins Diesel motors, Captain Ed was finally able to re-open, Open Sea Charter Fishing in 1996 and became a very reputable business today.

The other reason for re-opening the charter fishing business again, was because his wife, could never get Capt. Ed to hold down a  9-5 job.  Capt. Ed would disappear from work, or didn't show up because the Ahi's (yellow-fin tuna) were biting.  Or so we call it "Ahi fever". 

 

Our other Captain & Crew

     

    Capt. J.D, like Capt. Ed is also a local boy, born and raised here on Kauai, and commercial fished around Kauai and Ni'ihau for over 15 years.  He  has also worked for various  charter fishing outfits, and they know just as well as we do, how  valuable an asset Capt. J. D could be to any charter business.  Capt. J.D makes his money off the fish that is caught, and will do what it takes the hook up with a fish, and rest assured, he will do his best not miss a fish.  Like Capt. Ed, he take his fishing seriously!  We don't call him the "Wild Thing" for nothing!

    So if you ever wonder which charter outfit to go on... Open Sea Charter Fishing would be the one..  You will have a local Captain that loves fishing, with over 15 years of experience on the ocean, personable, will work his hardest, and put every knowledge and technique that he has, to hook you up with a catch!

 

 

 

 

     

Mate, Brian, is an old timer with Open Sea Charter Fishing.  He fished with Capt. Ed's father, Ed Horner Jr., when Open Sea Charter Fishing was one of the first and few charter fishing outfits in the late 70's.  Brian will assist you with your gear and help guide you when you have a fish on!  You won't have just an ordinary guy off the side of the dock, you will have a long time experienced deck hand at your service.
