Caroline Charter Boat

40 Otutehapari Rd
Waihau Bay, New Zealand

From Marlin Hunting off the East Cape of New Zealand to Trout fishing on Rotorua’s Lakes. I can target all species of fish. Be it Marlin, Tuna, Kingfish, Snapper, Terakihi, Kahawai or then Trophy sized Trout on our clean fresh water Lakes. I especially enjoy educating people on how to fish and all the necessary water safety aspects required to ensure your safety.

Our boat is surveyed according to strict New Zealand Maritime (MNZ) standards and I have the required MNZ commercial qualifications and licenses. Fish and Fun guaranteed.

For parents wanting a day on the lakes with their children,I offer: water sking, biscuiting, wake boarding, swimming, fishing and even a hot pool swim, along with some tips on safe boating.

All equipment supplied including life jackets, rods, caught fish and lures.

You are required to bring your own food, togs, towel and a day license if you want to go trout fishing on the lakes.

I love being on the water. I can target all species of salt water fish from Marlin to snapper. I also enjoy trolling and jigging for trout on any of the 5 main fresh water lakes in the Rotorua Catchment.

Kevin took us out early morning to get the calm water and we found a good snapper spot quite early on in the day.  Nice fishing, not a lot of fish but nice size.
