Charters

There are three types of trips we commonly book. Four hour trips are generally inside the harbour, 6 hour trips are out onto the South Coast and 9 hour full day trips are out to the deepwater, like the Trench and may include some inshore fishing as well.

What's included in a trip

We provide bait, expert help, tea, coffee, toast, fruit, something on the bbq (share cost trips) and filleting of all fish caught.

We look after you from start to finish and take you to the best fishing spots for the prevailing weather. Apart from the deepwater species there are good numbers of tarakihi, bluecod and gurnard around in the shallower water. Other species caught include snapper, kingfish, trevally, elephantfish, moki, trumpeter, warehou, tuna and sharks. Last season we caught alot of big kingis. They are a very strong fighting fish and often take anglers to their physical limits. Hopefully they will be back this season.

Day trips normally start at 7am and return around 4pm. When weather permits we fish the deep otherwise we stay closer to shore if its too windy. We let you know the day before and on the day what the conditions are likely to be so you can decide if you want to do that kind of fishing or not.

On 6hr trips we normally fish the inshore south coast or the 80-100 mark.  Half day trips start at 7am or 1pm. We can go deepwater fishing on a half day but half the trip is taken up steaming out and back.

We are happy to do what you guys want to do and will forge a plan to do the kind of fishing you want to do in the allotted time frame.   

The Marlborough Sounds - An all weather boating and fishing paradise. This is our favourite trip.

We fish our way over the Cook Strait targeting hapuku (groper), bluecod, tarakihi and gurnard before dredging scallops and sometimes diving for crays (weather permitting).

Our evening meal can be a seafood banquet comprising of scallops, crayfish and fresh fish. For the non seafood eaters a big juicy steak with fresh salad and potatoes normally stokes the boiler up after a big day out on the water.

You will enjoy an evening at a remote lodge in Endeavour Inlet with good music, a crackling fire with a few drinks and yarns. Accommodation is at the lodge or on the boat. The next day we fish our way back to Wellington.

For extended trips we can venture into Pelorus Sound or up to D'Urville and Stephens Islands.

Fish Filleting is all part of the service. We process and bag the catch so everyone gets a fare share

Kids Trips - We run these most school holidays and other times by arrangement.

Fishing is generally done inside the harbour. The kids have an awesome time!

We try and fish places with plenty of action to keep the kids busy and reasonably calm so there is minimal chance of sickness.

We do special rates for school groups and can pickups from Wellington central and the Hutt.

Harbour Trips - These trips have become really popular over the last few years.

One reason is that we hardly ever have to cancel them. There is always a calm spot to fish in the harbour, plus there are usually plenty of fish around.

These are the common fish we catch - kahawai, redcod, tarakihi, bluecod, trevally, gurnard and elephantfish. Snapper, kingfish are better in the summer months and other species will turn up from time to time to keep things interesting.

You can BYO your own food and refreshments or we can provide them. The harbour is perfect for xmas, stag or hens parties, birthdays, client entertainment, social clubs and kids trips.

We Provide - Bait & berley, tea & coffee, tap water, toast, fruit, a BBQ and kitchen facility, filleting & bags.

You can bring your own tackle and lunch or we can provide it for an extra charge.

Meals - Breakfasts (Bacon, eggs and toast) for $10pp or with tomatoes, mushrooms and hash browns for $15pp. Morning or afternoon tea for $7.50pp. BBQ lunches (steak, sossies, chops, salad and coleslaw) at $20pp. Roast lunch or dinner at $25pp.

Fishing Tackle - We supply all your fishing gear for $40pp day, $30pp half day, $20pp 3-4hr trip and $10pp for 3hr kids trips. We have two electric reels on board for $60pp. If you loose a hired rod/reel over the side you may be liable for replacement costs. If you are bringing your own tackle we suggest the following

For inshore fishing: 10 - 16oz sinkers, 2/O to 6/O re curve hooks, 50 - 80lb trace and 30 - 50lb braid.

For deepwater fishing: 30oz sinkers, 10/O - 16/O circle hooks, 150 - 300lb trace, 80lb braid. For an added advantage bring flasher rigs, long & slow jigs, soft baits, tuna/kingi trolling lures, lumo tubing and squid, flashing lights and cyloom sticks.
