Chase Wotten-Hunt

Chase has made his mark with EPIC customers over the past 4 years. He commands respect for his fishing skills and ability to put customers on the fish.

Chase comes originally from a commercial fishing background and prior to joining EPIC spent his free time out on a boat or diving with mates. So now, nothing has changed, except, he is doing what he loves as a job and has years of concentrated fishing experience under his belt. What makes the difference with Chase is that he is a listener. He has listened to those more experienced and now he is one of them.

Chase has a competitive streak which guarantees no one will work harder to put you onto the big fish (see him in action on the home page video). Always keen to drum up competition between the boats it’s never long before Chase will instigate some banter over the radio.

Chase’s passion for fishing and helpful nature gives him the ability to lend a hand to anyone needing it (especially when being slammed on a big fish), without it taking away any of the fun. As a customer you will notice that Chase will listen to what you say, read situations well and respond to your requirements.

He is completely focused on making sure his customers have the fishing experience of their lifetime and treats each charter with equal importance. Once customers experience his skill and passion they are fans for life.

EPIC

Epic was custom built to our requirements by Senator Boats and launched in 2011. Standard day departure Whitianga wharf but if a 2 or 3 boat booking it can be Tairua departure. She is a 7.5m long pontoon hard top, extremely safe and stable at rest. Epic is maximum width with a 2.5m beam, and our hardtop stretches almost to this width making it a hugely roomy boat for a trailer boat. The back of the wheelhouse is fully open so anglers are in full visible contact with the skipper at all times. The transom boasts full width livebait storage, with three seperate tanks with their own windows – livebait TV! Tanks are readily accessible for fisho’s and can easily accommodate over 100 live baits. All top end Shimano gear provided.

These guys are hilarious, knowledgeable, and damn good at catching fish. My wife and I left the boat exhausted and sore from reeling in massive snapper and king fish all day. If you’re coming to NZ in search of a deep sea fishing charter, look no further. I can’t recommend these guys enough, especially Captain Ryan of “Church.” Tight lines y’all. Timothy

exhausted and sore ….

Thank you so much captain Kit! You did a well-done job this last Sunday! Unfortunately, I got smashed by a giant Kingfish, I hope next time it will be different!

Thanks Kit
