The Charter Fishing Experience
Epic Adventures Hauraki Gulf based Game Chaser offers a host of exciting recreational fishing experiences, from complete novice to seasoned experts. Epic can outfit a perfect day or custom package. Softbaiting stray lining and light tackle jigging lend themselves to the Inner Gulf whilst stick baiting live baiting and of course bluewater trolling is for the outer gulf contenders. The fisheries produce a vast list of available species from Snapper, Kingfish and Trevally, for the inner gulf, to Haupuka Bass and Bluenose for the more adventurous. In the summer months the outer reaches of the Barrier host some great opportunities for the Bluewater enthusiast. Visitors to the outer reaches can be rewarded with exotic species including Tuna, Marlin and Broardbill Swordfish. Shimano outfit Game Chaser with state of the art rods, reels and tackle to make the experience even more Epic. New Zealand fishing the way it should be!

GameChaser Fishing Report January 2016
The newly black wrapped Game Chaser boat with EPIC down both sides is becoming a recognised icon on Waiheke Island for charter fishing. Even when it was towed down to Tauranga to do some game fishing and king fishing she was instantly seen as another Epic boat with phone calls coming into head office asking about her. The facelift on the Epic Game Chaser boat has made a huge difference to the look as can be seen by the photos. Captain Scott Lloyd Jones is very proud of her and keeps her in an immaculate condition all the time. I’m sure when the skipper is well organised there is more time to focus on catching those monster yellow tail Kingfish and snapper around Waiheke Island and the Hauraki Gulf.View more
Totally awesome day on some mean Kingfish, cheers guys!!!
I just got home.. still buzzing
Thanks Epic Adventures. I think there’s more than a few readers, and one Editor, who have addded NZ Kung Fush to their bucket lists! Pretty keen to get “railed”!
The fishing was also mindblowing thanks to your hard work. I really enjoyed the variety of fish we caught and appreciated the fact that we constantly tried new techniques and places – makes it more interesting and more productive.
Just a quick note to say thanks for the awesome fishing charter. We both had the most epic day fishing ever and will definitely be back.
Today has just landed itself as the No.1 charter ever!
Anyone thinking about doing a trip like this, and lets face it after seeing all the pics…
