Target Species

The Hauraki Gulf is prime breeding ground for Snapper and Kingfish - its right on our doorstep!

Snapper are our target on HALF and FULL days.
Kingfish are our target on FULL days as we can go a bit further.

Snapper

Scientific name: Pagrus auratus

Snapper are copper-pink on top with a silver-white underside and small blue dots on their sides.

They are:

most commonly found at depths of 15m to 60m but can also be found down to about 200m
most common in warmer waters around New Zealand – especially in the Hauraki Gulf
the dominant fish in northern inshore communities
at home in a wide range of habitats, including rocky reefs and areas with sandy or muddy bottoms.
Snapper mature at 3 to 4 years, when they're 20cm to 28cm long. They can live for more than 60 years and grow up to 105cm. They release many batches of eggs all through spring and summer.

Kingfish-on-page-image-600px_edited.png

Kingfish

Scientific name: Seriola lalandi lalandi

Kingfish are green on top with a white underside and a green-gold band along their side. About 75% of all kingfish caught in New Zealand are caught by recreational fishers.

Kingfish are:

most common in the northern half of the North Island but are found from the Kermadec Islands to Foveaux Strait
found in open coastal waters, preferring high currents or tidal flows near rocky outcrops, reefs, and pinnacles
sometimes found in areas with an open sandy bottom and in shallow, enclosed bays.
Kingfish are large predator fish. Adults grow to over 1.5m in length. They usually live in schools ranging from a few fish to well over 100. Recreationally caught kingfish average 10kg, but can be more than 30kg.

Your Skippers

Dawson 'Doors' Hansen

Our experienced and much-loved local skipper Dawson "Doors" loves fishing in his backyard. For over 20-odd years Doors has been fishing all over the peninsula.

You can be guaranteed a good time and good banter with Dawson.

In his spare time, you might see him playing the drums and singing in his band Mr. Mojo based out of Colville.

Chris Dabb

Chris is currently out of action for a little bit - We hope to have Chris back on board in the near future.

Chris brings his wealth of knowledge to the team! A true blue Coromandel fisherman, Chris has spent much of the last 25 years out on the Hauraki Gulf building on his skills and working commercially out on the water.

His enthusiasm for all types of fishing is unmistakable, combine that with years of experience working this unique and thriving fishing ground, and you’re in for an unforgettable fishing experience with a top kiwi guide.

Chris’s trips target Snapper and Kingfish from the surrounding islands out from Amodeo Bay on the Western side of the Coromandel Peninsula up to Fletchers Bay and Channel Island.

Their fishing charter service was amazing (especially for it being my first time on a charter), the skipper Dawson looked after us, let us do our own thing and gave us pointers and tips when needed. His banter was too notch as well. The staff there were friendly and courteous, and made our time there such an amazing trip. So many great memories made over the short time we were there, we are already planning a return trip!! 10/10 rating from me and the other guests.
