    • 6 stars from the Far North
  • Had such a great time Chase was a great skipper, looking after us queasy ones without batting an eyelid (and we were all nurses!! go figure) He hunted the fish for us and his advice helped us land them. A totally enjoyable day Thanks! Cate

    • Thanks Chase!
  • Our day with Epic was full of expectation with probablility of kingfish and possibility of puka. A quick stop to fill the livebait tanks (1/2 hour of sabiki fun). Off to the kingfish site.
    The skipper had the gear prepped in minutes and instructions on how and what to do. Easy?
    First drift – 2 rods loaded – boom! Quick measure and photo shoot. Wow, that was easy. Nothing huge but a good test of angler skill and gear. Next minute?
    Woohoo! Grunt & grind! Bigger and better fish. Wicked Kingfish session.
    Puka time. Off to 200m, 30oz sinkers and a good test of Shimano gear especially the Stella and also fisho stamina .5 for 5 – puka landed.
    Mix in a very tasty lunch and a great boat.
    Well worth the drive to Whitianga, good range of accommodation, food & watering holes.
    Cheers to Chase and Epic Adventures, Whitianga. Waru

    • Cheers to Chase and Epic Adventures
  • With a early start on Thursday at 4am to make a way to whitianga from tuakau auckland we were surprised to make it there by 6. We stopped at the bakery to grab some lunch and waited down at the Mariana/boat ramp for the arrival of mad max 2 with the legend Thomas maxwell. With a short meet and greet we headed out to catch our live bait. With our live bait tank full of yellowtail mackerel we were ready to head wide to catch the famous yellow tail kingfish. About 50mins later we were ready to drop our first baits with a quick tutorial from Thomas we were ready to get fishing . I did not expect to be railed by the first fish of the day that officially weighed 15.6kgs my new personal best .and absolutely wreaked my arms for the rest of trip � with every drop of bait we were hooked on to hungry kingfish which actually made you nervous because your arms are actually so tired from fighting them in the first hour of the trip lol . We tried another spot and caught some snapper and pink moamoa to chuck in the bin . With a bin full of fish and some sore battered arms we headed back in . To our surprise Thomas showed us some hidden caves and a little bit of sigh seeing Before we were back on land and absolutely buggered from a hard days fishing . Thank you so much Thomas maxwell. Two days later my arms and shoulders are still sore haha we will defiantly be back on your boat very soon . Cheers Rhys

    • Absolutely buggered from a hard days fishing
  • What an amazing experience on Mad Max, we asked Tom to find us some kingfish and he sure delivered. Embarrassingly enough the kingys were so big and so constant that we ran out of energy and had to target a smaller species.
    Can’t recommend mad max highly enough. Great day on the water.

    • Amazing!
  • Epic Charters is one slick operation even better when fishing aboard Madmax2 with Tom as a skipper the boys were pumped after watching new pictures pop up on Facebook everyday before our trip thinking it was to good to be true but it was true the boys arms were pumped after work out from some good solid Kingi’s then onto some Bluenose two drops two double hook ups and we had some very solid Bluenose we definitely be back to book with Tom on Madmax2 Cheers Epic & Tom you definitely live up to your name.

  • Hands down best charter going round. Captain chase was personable and not to intrusive like other charters, for the four days that we were booked he consistently put us on the fish and when we were to tired to chase the big stuff he gladly took us out to chase smaller snapper.  Highly highly recommended. Mohammed Mohtadi.
