Fishing Charters in Coromandel

Our fishing trips are prominently based on the mussel farms located around Coromandel and the firth of Thames. These farms are a huge food source for fish, especially the Snapper that come into the Hauraki gulf and inner-harbours during the warmer months.

It is at this time of the year that the fishing for both total novices and well-seasoned fisherman alike is just fantastic. In fact a resent article in one of our national fishing magazines, likened it to “shooting fish in a barrel”.

Experienced fishos will appreciate the local knowledge and techniques employed to target their fish. Novices will benefit from the tuition and patience available from the skipper if required. If you don’t like to touch the smelly bait or fish, he can also bait your hooks and remove your fish for you. Enabling you to still enjoy the thrill of hooking and landing your own fish.

Trip Times

We run several trips every day, and can organise trips by arrangement to suit you.
