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 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.

Brilliant day out hooked up to rampaging big kings! Chase worked hard to find the fish and when he did it was a hook-up every drop on big, bad kings. Great charter – a must if you are into fishing!

Great work Chase

Sensational charter service. I would recommend to anyone wanting to chase big kingys and snapper.
All Skippers really put in 110 percent, and a special thank you to our skipper Owen, top effort..
