Never been on a charter, but have worked pretty closely with the Whakatane fleet,

No 1 Rick Pollock
This guy has done more for fishing in NZ than any other charter operator in NZ full stop.

Indeed, if you are looking for the top of the tree in NZ Charter circles, I do not think you could go past Rick and Pursuit.

Coromandel Barge Fishing
(Ratis)
Skipper: Graeme & Linda

Contact: 07-866-7695 Mob: 021-1144485

Costs:  $50.00pp Child $25.00.  Rod Hire $10.00pp, Bait $10.00pp(let them know when you book)

They are roughly a new charter business only starting up last year.  I have always had a good time with them, very helpful and if only has one charter for the day will stay out longer as he has a motto you already out there why not stay.  Will try to make sure you go home with fish.  Book with him you won't be disappointed.  My brother caught a competition winning snapper that won him a brand new penn rod and reel set, 200.00 in cash plus other prizes.
I will catch you yet

Red Boats - Abalone Cruises.
Skipper: Dan and Jen
0800 RED BOATS or 09 579 9574

Costs: $65 per person + $10 for rod hire(optional) - 7am - 2pm from Z Pier Westhaven.
Costs: $55 per person + Optional Rod - 4pm - 9pm Z Pier Westhaven.

Not the fastest thing in the water, but haven't come back without fish. Both Dan and Jen are a great laugh and ensure you have a good time. One thing I really like about these guys is that you can book individual spots. They'll fit you in with a charter or take a boat out with people looking for only two or three spots (if there enough people on the day looking for individual spots). You can take alcohol on the boat as well if you like.

You have to get your own bait, but with Topcatch round the corner it's not a hard task. Parking is $10 for the day at Z Pier as well.


Nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught.

Rick pollock & his fine Vessel Pursuit would vie for the number one Charter boat operation in NZ.
National & world records, a can do attitude, one of the top charter boats on the water. Even Rick's sidekick & Zane's worth a mention - keenest fisher I have ever met with the knowlege to put average fisho's on to amazing fish.
 
Slick, professional, incredilbly experienced & one hell of a nice guy.
 
If you can get a booking - take it.

We have had some great charters in the past with Nigel Merry on Pacific Knight from Whakatane. I'm not sure if he's still operating but he always worked hard for us and was great company.

LIONEL KORACH - MEMORYMAKER CHARTERS - OHOPE BEACH, WHAKATANE
 
Have done a few charters with Lionel now and even though the fish have had their mouths shut a couple of times the banter and laughs are always top notch and he will go the extra mile to put you on a fish.
Add into that the awesome homestay set-up he has, great hospitality, awesome fishing yarns and drinks at the end of the day and you get the idea.
 
Also wouldnt have a bad word to say about EPIC in Tairua. Top bloke and kingis galore.

Captain Clay's Charters Snapper Fishing
Tel 03 - 574 2911. Mobile 0274 - 397 178.
 
HAVELOCK, halfway between Blenheim and Nelson
 
Caught up with an old friend from many years ago and now Clayton is "Captain Clay". 8m Sea Ranger with brand new e-tec 200hp to get around the Pelorus/Keneperu sounds. Targeting big snapper. I haven't been out with him but can say he's an honest good bloke, very keen fisherman, and a real character who has the snapper sussed in the sounds. I've seen his photos and his customers have caught some awesome snapper.
Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day.............Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer,
