A few diff charters on the scene these days.....most have been around awhile... Thought would update a few

Snap Attack with Carl & Lenny, out of Westhaven.. general snap fishing

Nik Key on various boats, think is looking for something else, but def one to look at, doe's mostly sliders...

Ultimate charters have a few boats & is worth a look, cater to all sorts.

Various boats in Coro:
Legionaire II with Noel, our Rsa used to hire him a lot, beast of a machine...

Nadgee a good boat, not fastest but puts you on the fish..

B & B is a quick boat from Thames, see him a lot when we out there...
fish next to him a lot lol.... motor is always going.... cause fish trained well, from the harvesters...LOL

Can find most on FB... just look

cheers

John, a big thanks for those comments.
 So valuable.
We have been on 2 charters over the yrs, one booked the other spur of them moment took up a cancellation.
 1 one lazy skipper.
 The other, gear in a mess, I even ended up at the bloody helm, as skipper sorting gear try to set up guests.. Me on the helm in waters never boated in before, other than a skippers coarse from the 1970s under my belt , nothing.
 Not only that the gps was close to last century, maps out dated...and  paid updated navionics on my smart phone far more peace to my mind.

Yes the latter wife picked up her PB snapper, I did my PB king, but that was all that was caught for the day.

Over the years have chatted to many of you guys who head out on charters on a regular basis..

Know who to book and what you are doing.

We have fishing reports for harbours / areas.
Rather than "Charter Operators.. good ones"
A Charter Operator Reports section.
 
Treat this part of fishing same as boating, fly, land based, dive ,everything else in the sport

Having a 4 day break at Paihia next week & as don't fancy towing the boat there & back in the hope of the weather co operating am thinking of going on a charter.

Fairly flexible but not too expensive so imagine would be looking for a kingi or puka expedition & maybe with suitable gear supplied to save having to pack it up & back.

Any suggestions or recommendations ?
Coming to the realisation that you are the same age of old folk is kinda weird but real scary finding out being "over the hill" means life goes faster down hill !
