Owen Wills

Owen aka bush billy aka Capt Owen is quickly becoming Epic’s most well-liked and well-known skipper. Sharp-witted and intensely focused on getting results. Owen’s armed with an arsenal of one-liners that encourage you to “get a wind on” and help you see the funny side of being slammed against the rail on a big Kingy. All this together, coupled with the fact Owen skippers the most advanced Senator in the fleet, makes a trip out with Owen an unbeatable adventure.

Owen started out with Epic as a land-based specialist and when the chance came up to get out on a boat the opportunity was quickly snapped up. Owen’s skills and take-action style off the rocks quickly converted to results on the boat, producing wicked trips and big fish for his clients with great knowledge on both sides of the Coromandel. if you are lucky enough to be on one of Owens’ trips…. buckle up you’re in for a good time.

Standard day departure out of Whitianga running to Aldies, Curvier and the Mercs and fishing four people chasing kingfish and anything else that shows up that pulls string!

Had an absolutely brilliant day out with Captain Ryan. He work incredibly hard to get us on some cracker Kingfish and ensured everyone on the boat landed a trophy fish plus a bunch more that were released. His handling of the boat was incredibly professional and help us bring the fish in without losing them to reefs or lurking sharks. Ryan was a fantastic host and willingly shared tips and insights on how to fish for these monsters. Then on the way home he went above and beyond helping us landed some snapper to round out a great day. Ryan well deserves his great reputation as a Kingfish charter skipper extraordinaire.

Great Day with Ryan

Excellent day out with Captain Chase. Got us onto some awesome fish and made sure the kids had a great time. This was a present for my 12 year old and he was totally stoked – is still grinning! Edwin

Still grinning!

Well organised, professional skipper with a great sense of humour. Excellent tidy boat. Small group was perfect, and we caught so many kingfish. An absolute bonus was being out on the water visiting the mercury islands, which are stunning. Absolutely recommend. Amber

Well organised and Professional

Brilliant day out with Ryan on “Church’ – huge Kingfish and Hapuka for me. Worth every cent! Chris

Worth every cent!

EPIC day out. Caught our biggest Kingy’s and Snapper to date. Skipper Owen was extremely professional and knowledgeable, and tried really hard to put us on a great catch and knew the area well. A bonus stopping by Cathedral Cove and the reserve on the way back. Could not recommend this charter enough, definitely the best experience for us by far. Caroline

Extremely Professional

Truly an Epic adventure for me and my mates. Chase placed us above the kingfish and there was plenty of action. Skippers are very skilled and quickly access if you need any additional assistance. We highly recommend Epic adventures! Will be back for another Adventure.

Truly Epic

We were recommend to Epic Fishing Charters, and they did not disappoint. Ryan Church our Skipper was fantastic, he knew all the spots, was a good sport and can highly recommend for a day of excitement and awesome fishing! Cheers Garage Door Repair man

Awsome day best fishing of a life time on Kaos my skipper was Awsome Sam,

fishing of a life time

Awesome time, everything we hoped it would be. Made my sons dream of a BIG kingi come true. Captain Chase worked hard all day in tough conditions to put us on the big ones. Highly recommend. The stop off to take a look at Cathederal Cove and view the snapper in the marine reserve was a nice touch. We also booked accommodation through Epic which was perfect and no hassles. Thanks EPIC, we will be back for another adventure soon.

Awesome time
