Cruising speed 15 knots. During this full day fishing trip we will catch fish such as Blue Eye Cod, Gemfish, Hapuka, Bar, Cod and Ocean Perch. Our fishing trips are great for any occasion and are also perfect for family outings such as Father and son fishing trips.
We specialise in fishing trips so you are guaranteed to have a fantastic time, the types of fish that we will catch on each fishing trip does vary but Marlin, Tuna and Shark are tagged and released.
Equipment used are purpose built Alvey winches loaded with 200 lb breaking strength braid. Because of the water depth (up to 500 metres) and weight of sinkers required, two persons are required to operate each reel on a team basis.
Included is all fishing gear, bait, morning tea and nibbles.
