Great day, Trent is a friendly and skilled skipper who worked hard to make sure we caught fish even in mid winter. He took us to multiple spots, changed baits and tactics and we got snapper exactly as we’d hoped. He filleted the fish and gave them to us so we could get them cooked at a local restaurant (Alongside restaurant in Paihia wharf turned them into a monster platter of fish and chips for us)
Great day out and I’d book again with him for sure.
