Michael Savage

Member since June 2022 Auckland, New Zealand
Background
With two parents that had a successful charter boat, Skipper Michael believes he was always going to be a fisherman. Growing up, he always wanted to be on the water, learning from his father different ways to catch fish – from Kahawai right up to Marlin. He believes that if you don't have a line in the water, you can't catch fish, so he uses all types of fishing from dead bait to live bait to lures, and invites you to come along to try it out.
