Reel Magic Fishing Charters

1 Alamar Crescent
Mangawhai Heads, New Zealand

Hi, I am Tony. I am the owner and operator of Reel Magic, a Marco 6.5 metre SouWester alloy hardtop boat that is run under the Safe Ship Management stipulations. The boat is comfortable and has plenty of shade, as well as a flush toilet on board.

Most trips are in the Bream Bay area in depths ranging from 15 metres in depth up to 50 metres, out and around the Hen and Chickens Islands which are about 10 miles offshore.

A large variety of species can be caught aboard the Reel Magic, but Snapper and Kahawai are the most prevalent. Other species include Yellowtail Kingfish, Terakihi, Gurnard, Trevally, John Dory and many others.

My favourite style of fishing is soft baiting on the drift, but I don’t mind anchoring up and using bait, jigging or whatever your preferred method is.

My hire rods are for bottom fishing. I don’t have any specialist soft baiting or jigging rods available for hire, so if you plan on soft baiting or jigging, you will need to bring your own gear.
