When I was 23 I decided life was too short to be stuck in a job I didn't like so I gave up my job, packed up my Holden Kingswood full of camping and fishing gear and when on a hiatus to Cape Runaway to suss out the monster kingfish lurking around. I found my Birth Mother, gave up smoking and got fit. After this trip and a number of far north trips I started running landbased fishing charters and selling wholesale fishbait in Wellington and it just grew over the years.
Now I have a retail fishing shop in Seaview and Rongotai, a wholesale bait distribution business and the charter vessel Daniel.
We are a small team with 2 - 3 full time and 4 - 6 part time staff
We run fishing trips 7 days on the harbour, out to the south coast and in the deepwater canyons out from Wellington and across to the Marlborough Sounds.
My shops run 7 days in the summer. I run an annual fishing comp, evening fishing seminars and keep active online with reports, photos, sales and general fishing information
