• 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.

    • Epic Review
  • 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.

    • Hands down winner
  • Wouldn’t go with any other charter in NZ or Aust, 4 x so far with Epic each time has produced the goods.Thanks for an awesome trip Capt Chase & Capt Tom aka Mad Max.
    We’ll be back again next year.. and the year after that. Troy

    • Keep Coming back!
  • My husband had a fantastic day fishing with Epic! Chase was the Skipper and did a fantastic job getting them on the fish. They caught plenty of fish, including Snapper and Kings to take home. Everything was well done. You won’t go wrong with Epic and/or Chase. Barb

    • Wonderful day
  • I just want to say a massive thank you to Capt Chase for an amazing day fishing out of Whitianga. Capt Chase’s ability to put us on to big kingies was scary!! I can 100% recommend these guys and can’t wait to head back in January for another epic adventure!!! Liam

  • Awesome day out – Skipper Owen worked very hard to put them on fish all day. Owen worked hard to keep everyone baited up and the boat clean. Dave was very happy.
    Top tip – ‘no strikey strikey’ ! Highly recommended skipper and charter. Susie

    • no strikey strikey
  • Just wanted to say a massive thanks to the Whitianga crews for making our charter a great day. We fished on board Coroking with the live wire Captain Owen and had a ball. Getting some solid kings and a couple of by catch horse John Dory. Owen worked hard all day and made the charter a great experience. Good quality gear on board. Highly recommended these guys.

    • Sore Arms
  • Epic by name and nature, great boats, great captain (Owen) been out 3 times and loved it…knowledgeable and worth the money!!! Amanda

    • Owen Rocks
