Chase Wotten-Hunt

Chase is the skipper on EPIC. 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.

Amazing day!! ‘CHURCH’ for the win… Ryan was a top skipper and we loved our trip catching Kingis all day! Voyage620483

11/10!

Went out in December with Captain Chase, who put us onto the fish right from the start and kept us on the fish the whole day. We were all constantly pinned to the side by the size of these kingfish, with pretty much every one we caught being between 10 and 20kg. Captain Chase was a professional who showed us better techniques and tips and well as keeping us up to date on what he was doing every step of the way. Could not recommend these guys more, anyone looking for a great days fishing catching kingfish this is where you should go. Rlamont

Fantastic day chasing big kingfish

My partner, his son Andrew and I had a day fishing on Kaos with Captain Owen. All caught a Kingi plus snapper. Best day ever. Give it a go. Toby

Awesome Experience

Incredible day fishing, very professional captain always finding fish and answering any questions. My partner wasn’t overly keen on fishing and she absolutely loved the day even pulling in the biggest fish for the day. Couldn’t recommend these guys enough! Can’t wait to go again!! Liam

Best day ever!!

Epic day out with skipper Chase! My dad and son had the best day catching Kingi’s. Highly recommend EPIC they are very knowledgeable and are good at what they do. Cheers guys for a great day out. Emma

Epic Day out!

Travelled from Australia to Whitianga hoping to catch Kingfish and Chase delivered. He worked hard all day and it paid of for us with heaps of BIG KINGS! Don’t risk not catching fish go with Chase. Thanks Chase and Epic.

Best day fishing with Chase!!

Wow, what an amazing day my wife and I had with Owen the Captain of “KAOS”. Owen was amazing, very friendly and certainly knew his stuff. He put us straight onto the fish and when the tax man (sharks) showed up we moved to a new spot. The scenery was magnificent and at the end of the day we hand fed massive snapper at the side of the boat. I highly recommend booking a trip with Owen on KAOS if you want your arm stretched by some big fish. E.P.I.C day! K6498MNnickm

Thanks Capt. Ryan on ‘Church’ – great skipper, got me onto a KINGFISH of a lifetime!! Pulled the boat from the rocks as soon as I hooked up & gave great advice on pulling it in! We landed it & now I’ve got some spectacular memories to cherish (along with great pics) for a long time to come!! Highly recommend & would go again in a heartbeat – cheers Ryan / you the man

Capt. Ryan the man!

I wholeheartedly recommend Epic Adventure’s boat, KoroKing under the guidance of Skipper Kit. I didn’t get my snapper, but instead caught a 15kg Kingfish on my snapper-rig. I was jelly for 10 minutes after that. Thanks Kit and Epic Adventure. Chris

Thanks Kit and Epic Adventure
