Kerry Gregory

Bay of Islands long term resident and legendary fisherman Kerry Gregory has been a part of the Epic team for nearly 2 years

If you visit the local Russell Swordfish club you will see our Skipper Kerry on the walls as he holds several of the local records and can boast some serious fish. With decades of experience as a local fishing charter captain you will be in good hands. As well as being a great fisherman Kerry will also entertain and inform you with his knowledge of the local history and geography.

The Bay of Islands is an exciting fishery and accessible on an Epic Adventures fishing charter from the main Wharf’s at Russell and Paihia. or Waitangi (by special arrangement).
There are many fishing options in the waters around the Bay of Islands, ranging from shallow snapper fishing to the deeper water pins and knolls for kingfish and the occasional hapuka. Further out there are the world famous marlin options made famous by Zane Grey last century. There are still plenty of bill fish around and Capt. Kit on KOROKING can show you where!

Bay of Islands…. is EPIC!

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

Cheers Capt. KIT

Awesome day guys!! really enjoyed it thankyou so much!! Chelsea

Really enjoyed it

Was lucky enough to be aboard CHURCH today, Ryan is the man! Put us on the fish every single drop, and didn’t waste any time to chase them. Over 20 solid kings and not a single fish dropped or reefed all day. Legend, ill be back.

Ryan is the man!

Fantastic skippers who really know what they are doing – if you’re after huge Kingies these are the guys! Rob
