Chris Dabb

Chris, brings his wealth of knowledge to the Epic team, based out of the beautiful Anglers Lodge, Amodeo Bay. A true blue Coromandel fisherman, Chris has spent much of the last 25 years out on the Western side of the Coromandel building on his skills and working commercially out on the water.

His enthusiasm for all types of fishing is unmistakable, combine that with years of experience working this unique and thriving fishing ground, and you’re in for an unforgettable fishing experience with a top kiwi guide. Chris’s trips target Snapper and Kingfish from the surrounding islands out from Amodeo bay on the Western side of the Coromandel Peninsula up to Fletchers Bay and Channel Island.

Anglers Lodge II

Anglers Lodge II is a steady, offshore 7.5 Aluminium monohull. The walk makes it the perfect vessel to fit a couple more anglers for Snapper fishing and the 250hp Mercury makes easy work of reaching those epic fishing spots. Toilet available by prior request.

Chris’ local knowledge went a long way!

The best part of the trip was definitely fishing with Chris. We are dedicated fisho’s in Australia and he gave us his all to get us on the spot and the snapper biting!

Totally awesome day on some mean Kingfish, cheers guys!!!


Thanks for the Awesome trip,I look forward to seeing you again this coming summer if not sooner


Many thanks for a good couple days of fishing! Certainly going home satisfied after breaking some personal milestones
