Captain
Mike Leese

Member since May 2017 Mangawhai Heads, New Zealand
Background
I moved Mangawhai Heads with my family in late 2015, providing an opportunity to invest in a business that represents my true passion of fishing, diving and the great outdoors. I have been boating and fishing in New Zealand for over 30 years and among fishing friends I am known as “The Master”, hence the company name “Fishmeister”. Fishmeister is the fourth boat I have owned and it was custom built in 2016 to ensure optimal fishing space for customers. For the past ten years, the majority of my fishing has focussed on the Great Barrier and Mokohinau Islands and I know this territory well. As customer safety is paramount to me, I have supplemented my many years of boating experience with a New Zealand Certificate in Domestic Maritime Operations qualification approved by Maritime NZ. I'm also a qualified first aider, marine radio operator and engineer - you're in safe hands.
