Ryan Churches

Epic is super stoked to have Ryan join its ranks. Ryan has been fishing the Coromandel waters for as long as he can remember.
With a passion for all kinds of fishing whether it be lures under birds, stray-lining for big snapper or dropping livies and jigs for big kings! Ryan puts in his all to get people onto that trophy fish!

Like all of Epics skippers fishing runs deep in their blood, Ryan is no exception and is often out on the boat honing his skills always searching for that horse on his days off!

CHURCH is a versatile Bluefin 665 with a stable 2.5 beam and comfortable seating making her a perfect vessel for chasing kingies and big game fish.

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
