Epic Adventures takes you on a unique fishing trip. Year round, the rich fisheries produce some of the finest Yellowtail Kingfish. If you’re up for an amazing chase, striking scenery, and an experienced crew, come along!
The crew of the Epic Adventures knows the local waters well. They will take you to the productive fishing grounds. This team of fishermen pays great attention to the health of the fisheries and cares deeply about the experience itself. They want to make your trip near perfection so that you have a smile on your face after you get back to the dock.
You will be fishing from a 25’ Senator aluminum fishing boat. She is powered by a 250 HP Honda engine and can reach speeds of up to 40 knots. The boat features navigational electronics, as well as live bait, and an ice box. There is a pump toilet onboard, with limited privacy, used only in case of emergency. The boat stores all the gear you will need.
Once you board the boat in Russel or Paihia in the Bay of Islands, the crew will carry out a safety briefing, and you will ride for about five minutes before reaching the fishing grounds. When you get the bait, you will rig it and drop it straight into the water to entice the nearby Kingfish. You can often get a solid number of Kingies in the bay. When you fill the bait tank, you will ride for another 40 minutes and reach various Kingfish pins. That’s when the action starts.
These waters are packed with other fish as well. You can get Tuna, Mahi, or a Marlin as a by-catch during summer. You can also get some Hapuka, Bass, or Snapper, but your eyes will be set on the Kingfish.
When you pack for the trip, you should bring food and drinks, as well as a cap, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Kids are welcome to come along, and the crew recommends that kids are at least 8 years old. Each traveler can keep only one Kingfish.
One last thing — bring a camera. These fish can grow super big, so you’ll want to have a nice photo of your catch.
