Owen Wills

Owen aka bush billy aka Capt Owen is quickly becoming Epic’s most well liked and well-known skipper. Sharp witted and intensely focused on getting results. Owen’s armed with an arsenal of one liners which encourage you to “get a wind on” and helps you see the funny side of being slammed against the rail on a big Kingy. All this together, coupled with the fact Owen skippers the most advanced Senator in the fleet, makes a trip out with Owen an unbeatable adventure.

Owen started out with Epic as a land based specialist and when the chance came up to get out on a boat the opportunity was quickly snapped up. Owen’s skills and take action style off the rocks quickly converted to results on the boat, producing wicked trips and big fish for his clients with great knowledge on both sides of the Coromandel.

KAOS is our newest Senator, a RH770.
It’s a beast! KAOS is fully pimped out with the very latest in SIMRAD marine electronics, Honda BF 250 Engine, the very best rods and reels from Jigstar, Maxel and Shimano.
Standard day departure out of Whitianga running to Aldies, Curvier and the Mercs and fishing four people chasing kingfish and anything else that shows up that pulls string!

Our day out with Epic was in fact truly ‘Epic’! Chase our skipper was impressive all around. A young skipper who seemingly out fished all the other boats in our vicinity on the day. Being a fisherman myself and seeing the way he put us on the fish and managed multiple hook ups with these beasts was amazing. 17 kingis caught on the day and we smoked 5, just enough to keep our families well feed for Christmas! I’ll be back for sure. Adam (kiwi living in China).

Would just like to say a huge thank you to Ryan, it was tough start to the day finding it hard to get on the livebaits and then technical problems with the gps, but Ryan dealt with this professionally and although a tough start he got us back to shore to have the gps fixed,and back out there in no time to pick up some more live baits and onto some cracking kingy fishing. I found him very knowledgeable and good company. An all round epic experience and I will  definitely be coming back for another go! Hope you all have a good Christmas and New Years, If I could have a copy of the photos sent to me that would be great.Tight lines, Thanks, Tom

Julie and I had a awesome time, our expectations for the fishing trip were exceeded. Our skipper Owen was the key to success with his tireless effort keeping the boat in the right place and friendly advice on fishing technique and our scenic trip on the way home. This was an epic adventure, thanks, Simon

Expectations exceeded

Great day out at sea, will highly recommend it as a must do, if you love fishing. The skipper knew his stuff and really looked after us. Elva

Must do!

What an awesome day!! My son and I went out with Chase and had one of our best days on the water. We caught 11 big Kingies and a couple of huge snapper. Chase was excellent at putting us right on the spot – boats around us were catching nothing while we were hauling them in. Thanks for a great experience.

What an amazing day! Paul

What a day…lived the dream and caught monster Kingies! Great boat, fantastic gear, experienced skipper, very satisfied customer… Hope one day to go back for more!

Lived the dream. Luke
