Surfcasting & Rockfishing has always been a passion for me. I have fished extensively around NZ's best surf beaches and rock ledges and would love to show you the best fishing this country has to offer.
Safety is my top priority I then teach and help you catch fish. Courtesy transport is provided on all trips. I often travel through private property to places the general public don’t often get to go. No risks are taken with off-road tracks in bad weather.
I can guarantee you a catch. Depending on conditions, during the summer months, we can grab a few pauas and kinas on the low tide. I am happy to have a cook up on the beach or back at the 4x4. Meals are available on request.
If you are bringing your own tackle I suggest - Surfcasting - 12, 13 or 14ft rod, 15-25lb mainline, 30 - 60lb traceline, 4-5oz breakaway and upside down pyramid sinkers, 1/o - 3/o hooks, cotton, knife, baitboard, torch, beachspike. Rockfishing - 1 x 6-15kg set for catching kahawai and snapper, 1 x 24/37kg set for catching kingis, 1/o-5/o hooks, 10/o livebait hooks, knife, baitboard, 50lb and 130lb traceline, heavy duty ball bearing swivels, cotton, sabikis, balloons.
