Response time 4 hours
Member since June 2017
Brendon Hawker grew up by the “Bay of Islands,” considered the heart of New Zealand's game fishing. There he was hooked as a child into the exciting sport of game fishing, a passion which never stops growing. His desire to catch a bigger prize every time led him to the East and West Coasts of New Zealand and beyond, to Cairns, Tonga, Minerva Reef, Wanganella Banks and Exmouth. After seeing the billfish potential Exmouth has to offer this lead him to settling in Exmouth. Brendon Hawker is a experienced skipper, skippering Billfish records in both New Zealand and Tonga. He is familiar with all methods of Billfishing, whether it's with lures, switching, live baits, dead baits, or converting Billfish to fly.
