What People Are Saying About Snapper (Pink) Fishing in New Zealand

"7hr trip 6am start. Skip Darren"

Mathew Tamou fished with Days Out Fishing Charters BOI NZ on December 19, 2019

Great day out with skip Darren. Got a load of Snapper however the Kingis decided not to play ball, all in all a great day with light hearted banter and a few lessons learnt told by our Skipper Darren. Well done Mate. We shall return... .

"Fishing with Derek"

Daryl Everson fished with Big Fish Bay Of Islands on May 10, 2019

Derek had us on the live bait within 10mins, had a great morning out fishing and ticked off the two from the bucket list - Kingy and NZ Snapper - thanks heaps Derek :)

"Kingfish trip with Captain Derek"

Julian De Beer fished with Big Fish Bay Of Islands on April 7, 2019

Great morning out Derek certainly knows his stuff and managed to find the Kingfish for us. Managed to hook several but unfortunately sharks spoiled the party. Managed to retrieve one Kingfish head. Still got a nice Snapper for dinner. Will definitely try again with Derek !

"Day Trip"

David Marsh fished with Riko Boat Charters - Riko Riko on January 29, 2019

Nice boat, good knowledgeable, easy going Captain who was very good with the children. We caught plenty of Snapper and it was a great trip.

"private charter with Darren"

Suzie Coulston fished with Days Out Fishing Charters BOI NZ on March 22, 2018

A great day out for the five of us with Darren. The bronzeez were pretty hungry for our kingys - but the BBQ'd kingfish cheeks and the karwhy fishcakes we cooked up for dinner were delicious. Snapper fillets for breakfast tomorrow! Great boat, great stories and Darren was great at keeping our hooks baited with livies.

"6 hour trip with Captain Mike"

Adrian Piotrowski fished with Big Fish Bay Of Islands on March 13, 2018

Didn't catch the Kingfish I was after but enjoyed my time with Derek. We had some reasonable Snapper and Waihi and Derek tried very hard to get me the elusive Kingfish. Reasonable price and well worth a booking with Derek if you're in Bay of Islands.
