Pete Lamp Fishing stands for all-round fun and adventure! Skipper Pete has been fishing for over 45 years and chartering for over 25, which he enjoys immensely. He loves taking his guests on offshore trips where he is more than happy to teach them all the fishing techniques he is familiar with, and give the children his undivided attention when they want to catch serious fish.
The boat is 47 feet long and has a safety survey for 12 people to the Marlborough Sounds. On average, 12-15 people is comfortable for day trips. It is powered by a 500 HP Scania engine, and can reach a maximum cruising speed of 10 knots easily. Daniel carries a toilet and a kitchen, as well as a GPS and a fishfinder so you can locate those spots packed with schools of fish.
Pete Lamp Fishing offers different fishing packages and depending on the package and the seasonality, you will be catching very big Gropers (Hapuku), Black Seabass, Bluefin Trevally, and have experiences with Albatross, Whales, Dolphins and Sharks regularly. They will also put you on Tarakihi, Blue Cod, Gurnard,Pink Snapper, Kingfish, Kahawai and various other species.
They often run 3 hour harbour trips on Tuesdays during the school holidays going for the calm water where there are plenty of bites. Kids can steer the boat, learn about filleting, feed the Seagulls, catch fish and generally have a good time.
Pete Lamb Fishing can also provide an all weather boating and fishing experience to Marlborough Sounds. Accommodation is on shore ($25 - $45pp per night) or on the boat (up to 7 people). It takes 4 hours to steam to the Sounds from Seaview but they can take you fishing your way across. They dredge up scallops, drop divers and can organize walks, hunting, diving and other activities if required.
