Geoff Lamond and the team at New Zealand Game Fishing will provide you with New Zealand’s premier fishing experience anywhere from the world famous Three Kings Islands to the East Cape of New Zealand’s North Island.

Arenui is a 47ft Custom O’Brien, which represents a modern day example of sheer sport fishing elegance. With state of the art electronics, a full range of the highest quality fishing tackle and luxurious accommodation and furnishing, Arenui is without doubt the jewel in New Zealand’s charter fleet.

Geoff Lamond is recognized as one of the leading skippers within the New Zealand game fishing industry. With more than 18 years of professional game fishing experience and crewing on some of the world’s top game boats in New Zealand, Australia, the Azores, Vanuatu, the Cook Islands, Japan and the Indian Ocean… Geoff has developed an impressive resume.

Geoff has been lucky enough during his career to work with some well-known national and international captains. Australian’s Brian Felton, Ross Finlayson, Tim Dean, Luke Fallon and Dean Butler, plus the late Joe Franck from the Azores are all highly regarded operators that Geoff has been able to develop his knowledge and skills under.

Career highlights for Geoff, being at the helm for the men’s 4kg Striped Marlin World Record in 2005 plus being involved in four other world record claims as a crewman. Biggest fish 1258lb Black Marlin for angler Jack Owen of Alaska, USA.

The New Zealand Game Fishing team caters from the novice right through to the most experienced angler… we certainly look forward to hearing from you and having you on board!
