Had a top day with Captain Owen my mate Nevile and a ring I Pomm Dave. Thanks heaps Owen lovely Kings Hapuka and that massive Bronzie. Cheers back soon
What an amazing experience with Epic we asked our skipper to find us some kingfish and he sure delivered. Embarrassingly enough the kingys were so big and so constant that we ran out of energy and had to target a smaller species.
Can’t recommend mad max highly enough. Great day on the water.
Never a bad day out with Epic! Best fishing charters in Whitianga! Pamie
Epic is an under statement,Capt. Owen had us on fish every day thanks for a great trip. Peter
Amazing skippers and amazing service. Guyz really know what they are doing? Great boats and great fishery thanks guyz see you next year. Daniel
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.

Awesome days fishing for 4 boys as a treat for a 60th birthday!
MadMax at his best ensuring the boys got ‘epic’ Kingis!! Beyond what they expected.
Thanks for making it a great trip Thomas. Denise
Awesome day out – Skipper Owen worked very hard to put them on fish all day. Owen worked hard to keep everyone baited up and the boat clean. Dave was very happy.
Top tip – ‘no strikey strikey’ ! Highly recommended skipper and charter. Susie
Just wanted to say a massive thanks to the Whitianga crews for making our charter a great day. We fished on board Coroking with the live wire Captain Owen and had a ball. Getting some solid kings and a couple of by catch horse John Dory. Owen worked hard all day and made the charter a great experience. Good quality gear on board. Highly recommended these guys.
