Strike Zone Fishing Charters takes you fishing around out of Taura, New Zealand. You’re in for a fun day on the water, whether you’re a novice angler or a hardcore fisherman. With the year-long fishing season for juicy tablefare, surpassed only by hot summer months of game fishing, you’re at the right spot. Capt. Jason’s charter is the perfect gateway to New Zealand’s finest fishing.
Capt. Jason will take you fishing where the fish are. You can be staying close to the shoreline or head far out, all the way to the Alderman Island, for a Marlin. Jason knows the local fishing spots intimately and has skills to make your day worth the while. With impeccable reputation among his fellow fishermen and years of fishing experience, Jason is a great guide for any fishermen.
The action with Strike Zone Fishing Charters takes place aboard a 24’ Challenger center console. She is powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. Onboard, you will find a large cockpit which is perfect for four anglers, as well as a hardtop to ensure you stay dry and warm. The vessel is fitted with Lowrance HDS electronics, and features livewell, tuna tubes, rod holders for up to eight outfits, as well as enough storage for the fish you catch. There is also a chemical toilet onboard.
These waters are blessed with a variety of fish. During summer you can get Striped and Blue Marlin using trolling lures or live bait. Then, if you want a nice dinner, you can go fishing for Snapper and get to do bottom fishing. Of course, Kingfish are a big thing here and put up a nice fight. If you’re up for some casual fishing, you’ll be jigging, bait fishing, slow jigging, and softbaiting.
Capt. Jason is great at explaining how fishing works and will be more than glad to brief you about how-tos to get you some nice fish. You will get ice and bait, and some complimentary tea. You should pack food and drinks. Put on comfortable clothes, sunglasses, and a camera.
