Had a trip out today with Chris on "Coro Cowboy" (cowboy) on the forums, we had a blast, and would have no hesitation in recommending him to others, easy to get on with, and looks after his clients very well. Thanks for the trip out Chris, will definitely be back for more of that snapper and kingfish action you put us onto, and the mussells you sent us all back with were an added bonus.
Dont take life too seriously.....no one gets out alive any way.

One that seems to have missed being mentioned is Assassin, out of Sandspit, Warkworth.
Brett & Chris run a mighty service with an emphasis on softbaiting.
There wouldn't be many who would have as much knowledge when it comes to softbaiting & the many years of working the Gulf give the charter added advantages.

Actually Assassin is an awesome boat, Brett is a knowledgable skipper.  my cover shot on the Bayfisher was one of Brett's fish.  tell him what you want to catch and he will make it happen.  i have had three trips with Assassin one time I took the whole family - he was able to cater for hard fishos and my then 3 year old twins!  Cheers Brett and Chris.

Colin Tecofsky - Fish & Dip Charters - Softbaiting guru - can be contacted via Top Catch at Sulpher Point. I did a trip with Colin a few years ago and he got me sorted in the softbait caper.
 
Extreme - Ginga - on this forum - jigging & Popper fishing guru - I am sure he accomodates all styles of fishing -  he has a website somewhere
 
Fat Boy Charters - I have also heard good things about Russ
 
All three of the above operators have boats that are well suited to smaller groups 2-6pax

Captain Clay's Charters Snapper Fishing

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.

thanks mate after sifting through all the pages I found 1 for the area,got a friend looking at sorting a trip that way in the near future, are there any others in the area I haven't done my homework yet to see ,hes never fished in his life and want him to  get a good run for his first time

Been on Grouse fishing charters out of Tauranga before, was pretty good, Put us onto the fish in pretty trying conditions. If you cant find them in the phone book talk to Matt at De Coro fishing supplies, He knows the skip.
Go the Warriors!

had a trip with Blue Ocean charters , very nice people , got to admit that being a jafa i wasnt used to wee little hooks for terakihi , they gave me great advice , skipper was friendly etc ... cheap as chips too .

an observation or 2.... we are spoilt in Auckland , at the Tauranga marina the charter boats are moored a gazillion miles from the parking ! , couldnt see any logic to their setup .The Terakihi fishery ( from what i saw ) is very healthy , the currents are big . The only negative was that our boat only had a grapnel anchor - we were anchoring over sand , hence it just kept pulling with the current and breeze so a good portion - in a fact a majority of our day was spent trying to find some foul to get the anchor to hold , the skipper was not amused but did his best .

Did suggest he ask the pwners to get him a decent anchor for xmas , i think the boat was called te kuia ? very big and great setup , lots of space for fishing and your gear .

one of the best charter skippers/ operators in my experience has to be Chris, from the Te Ra at Whangamata. our club recently had a charter booked with him, which was cancelled at short notice by Chris, unfortunately some of the crew didn`t recieve the message in time. when they turned up at the wharf, he instantly took them out for a couple of hours with NO CHARGE! there was no reason for him to do this, but he went out of his way to help our club members. a few fish were caught and everyone was happy. well worth a look if you are over that way. an all round good guy, always willing to help with advice for the inexperienced fisho`s
will put his contact details up asap
