Went on a work fishing trip yesterday. Kiwi angler was the operator and was dam good. Got a few kings on bored and a nice amount of snaps, nothing near our limits but enough for a feed. Rex the skip is a good bloke and his boat is in awesome condition and well cleaned and maintained.

Nope - the name came from my Buccanneer - which of course is a Barbary Buccanneer.

Ive not been out on Kiwi Angler, but it was next to us last summer at the Tutukaka marina for a while. My Bro and I both had some good chats with Rex when we happend to be at the marina at the same time..

He seemed like a great guy... we shared info, he invited us onto his boat... even though we were never going to be customers... and I just got the impression from chatting to him that he wanted to put his charters onto the best fishing he could find..

I was really impressed...  and Ive never even been out fishing with him !!!Thumbs Up

As you can see in my latest report the girls and I had an awesome trip with Coastal Fishing Charters (Strictly Fishing) out to the Ranfurly Banks...  Aaron had a good look around for the fish and certainly put us on them - you can see that from the small selection of photos, we had no shortage of fish and a Jurassic MONSTER from the deep...
One of the only charters that offers a day trip out to the Banks too I believe Thumbs Up  And not forgetting the stereo to crank the sounds on the way out and for the party on the way home! :)

Just had a company fishing trip out with Snapper Catchers third year in a row with them and have to say if you have a big group looking for fish then these guys are definitely worth booking with. I set the size limit set at 30cm plus for snapper and everyone of us 17 still went home with a good feed of 5+ snappers. Thank you to Carrie and Todd and our awesome Skipper Kevin. will book for next year shortly.

Hey guys just reporting on a charter went out on last weekend out of Bayswater. Rico charters skipper is Bryan. Probably one of the best value charters been on 12 hours exactly on the water skipper saw the bite come on just as we were supposed to leave to head in but stayed out out for another two hours got a most of the fish in that two hours. Bryan even cooked up some noodles & fish for the trip back to Bayswater. Slow boat but great skipper well worth a look if you want a friendly skip for a fish in the gulf.

Ended up doing an afternoons charter on "Rosemary" last weekend. Lovely old historic launch (1926?) with two crusty old sea salts who kept the coffee, fishing story's  and humours banter coming thick and fast.

$70 per head, put us on the fish at the first drop and not only filled the bin with Snaps but managed a big Dory as well. Highly recommended.

Hi all,
Steve here from the uk, hope your all doing great down there in NZ.
I'm lucky enough to be visiting the north island for the whole of feb 2014 and looking to get a days charter with the hope of a marlin.
Could I ask you what your top recommendation would be for the best boat/skipper for this? Maybe mid budget!
Thanks guys!

I've just got back home after fishing aboard Crazy Horse - 308 charters from Te Waitere on the Kawhia harbour. Its a good 45 mins from Kawhia but the boat is fast, reasonably well appointed and the owner and skipper are great company as well as knowledgeable & ready to help. A very good option for fishing the West Coast. Accomodation is available by arrangement and I suggest you take advantage of that as it's a long way to drive home after a big day of providing. Puka and kingfish are real options out there but Dave the owner suggests booking an overnight trip for puka.

A good charter no doubt about it.

Shared a charter on Seahawk today with a friend company, out of Z Pier from Auckland's Westhaven. This was a replacement trip after last week had to be abandoned due to sea state. Great boat, with a great setup, plenty of seating for the trip out, modern and well maintained and quick boat. Was only supposed to be a half day charter but but Lenny & Marcus stayed out there until the weather clagged in to let us get our catch up. Great value and great team. And some nice fish were caught.

Highly recommended. We will be repeat customers.

I highly recommend Megabites fishing charters in Auckland. The skipper Darell always works hard to get everyone some fish even when it's really slow. Even when it's a mixed charter he'll try his best to cater for everyone's needs.
