The Location

On the western side of the Coromandel Peninsula about 30 minutes north of Coromandel Town, you’ll find Anglers Lodge nestled meters from the shoreline of Amodeo Bay. With an outlook over scattered islands out in the Firth of Thames Anglers Lodge really is its own little piece of paradise and the added bonus of being a family run operation with world class service makes your stay a great one. As the name would suggest, the lodge has a long history of anglers coming to stayfrom all over New Zealand and abroad. There is plenty of boat parking and a launch and retrieve service by the Anglers Lodge tractor on request.The lodge has its very own Epic charter boat skippered by Chris Dabb, taking Snapper and Kingfish fishing trips daily.

The Charter Fishing Experience

With Chris skippering the Epic Anglers boat you’re in good hands. The Firth of Thames when you know where and when to look produces some of the fattest Snapper in the country and if you feel like heading further to Channel Island you’re bound to get hooked up on some sizable Kingfish. Anglers lodge offer morning and afternoon Snapper fishing charters. A great way to fill the bin up with beautiful Snapper or whole day adventures to any part of the Firth and waters at the northern end of the Coromandel Peninsula.

Highly recommended.

We went out with epic adventures from anglers Lodge in Coromandel with skipper Chris had a great time!! The skipper was great talkative easy to get along with and we caught big snapper and good size kingys definitely would do it again thank you. Jess

Thanks Chris

Epic. Great name and description for what we experienced today. Chris the skipper…..awesome. Fishing was great. Weather was good. Boat just perfect. Anglers Lodge as always…..laid it on. Thank you

Awesome Chris!

Wahlgren Family, It exceeded our expectations. The unit we were in had everything that we required. It was clean and comfortable. Could not think of anything that would be required further. The property itself is beautiful. It is well maintained, clean and has a very friendly atmosphere. What you have done so far makes it an enjoyable place to stay and access this amazing area. The fishing charter out of the lodge in Anglers Lodge II gave us an experience we will never forget. Caught the biggest King fish I have landed. Chris Dabb is an assets you do not want to loose. His enthusiasm about what he does is unbelievable. I could not believe his knowledge about the local area and the fish he targets. It seemed he was just as devastated as I was when I lost a big fish at Channel Island. Nothing better than a fresh made coffee delivered to the unit every morning prior to our trips. Thanks for one of the best fishing trips I have been on. Keep up the good work. See you next year. Gavin Hurtado

Exceeded our expectations

Best Ever!

More than just a fishing charter, it was an adventure. Caught big fish and learnt heaps too. Wish I could give it more stars! Paul

Epic Adventure!

Epic Adventures were fantastic from the office to the ocean , Great company to deal with we fished with Owen wills had two awsome days on the kingys. Owens dedication and skills to getting you onto big kingfish are second to none , Awsome trip we will definatly be back. Luke

Great company

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
