Background
I started fishing with my Dad on his sportfisher at the age of 6 and fished hard out ever since. After completing an engineering degree i had the calling to target fish and guide my friends and clients on to incredible fishing experiences. I qualified with my first commercial captains licence 25 years ago and now run with a offshore master ticket and moved to the Bay of Islands,the best fishing in New Zealand by far. I have owned many boats over the years and have put together MONTEREY a 43 ft fishing machine to give me and you the best rig and chance to catch amazing fish.
Techniques
I like to fish with live baits and lures that replicate the local bait species. I am Passionate to make every rig,every bait the most successful combination that make for the best hook up and catch on all species.

Went fishing on Tuesday, December 27, 2016

From the moment we arrived we had a friendly welcome and introduction from Rob and Darren, the boat was immaculate and we had a great day for weather ahead of us!
We were informed of local knowledge as we drove to our first stop to collect bait, fun for all the family as the small mackerel caught the line, sometimes three at a time!
The rest of the day was spent further out in the Bay of islands,  stunning was beautiful, helpful guidance and advice and much needed patience especially from Darren, who made the trip super special without being intrusive or over the top, the Monterey team really made our day and I’d reccomend to anyone to take a day trip fishing with them.
We came away with plenty of snapper, all filleted in front of us, and with great memories!
Thanks again Rob and Darren
