Phoenix Fishing Charters Auckland

Learn to fish like a pro with the help of one of the most experienced charters in Half-Moon Bay – book a trip with Phoenix Fishing Charters Auckland! Brett Smith is a knowledgeable and skilled skipper who’ll coach you and show you the best techniques to land that dream catch. He just loves showing his customers all the tricks and hacks so feel free to ask for his assistance.

Your adventure will take place aboard the ‘Beast’, a 30’ offshore sportfishing boat manufactured by Blue Water Boats. Fresh on the water in 2018, it features the latest and the best in safety gear and marine electronics (including Simrad NSS16 evo2 GPS), a 300 HP Suzuki outboard engine, a live bait tank, tuna tubes, and an esky.

It also has a private walk-in toilet and a full cabin that will protect you from the elements while running to the top fisheries. The boat can accommodate 6–8 anglers in full style and comfort and take you to the best deep sea spots in no time. This walkaround boat with a large cockpit will give you enough room to fish without bumping elbows and tangling lines.

Your skipper will do everything he can to put you on the biggest Snapper, Kingfish, Trevally, Kahawai, Gurnard, and so much more. Slow jigging is his preferred technique, along with soft baiting and live baiting, but you’ll also get to try a variety of others.

You’ll be supplied with all the needed fishing gear by top brands such as Ocean Angler and Penn, but you’re also welcome to bring your own gear. Live bait and lures are also provided free of charge.

Phoenix Fishing Charters Auckland are your safe bet for a fun and productive day on the water!
