Deep sea outer gulf fishing

Cruising at 20 knots , Birdwing is a fast alloy boat with a Yanmar inboard diesel engine, well maintained and under MNZ Survey. Your trip can be customised for you and your companions. Some like fishing-others prefer bird watching ,free diving, or snorkelling. Photography is encouraged. Our crew are ocean sailors, naturalists, helpful and patient. Snorkelling and free diving are available (swim platform) BYO wetsuit, (only when nobody fishing.)

NB All activities are weather ,wind and current permitting.

Gourmet lunch boxes included. BBQ breakfast if you want it. Juices, cider, tea and coffee at intervals. Deck hands have each 25 years experience with blue water trips.(Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific).

No young children on Deep Sea Tours.

-Soft baiting rods available for short intervals (used off stern)

-Trolling rods for bird workups or when moving to a new fishing site.

-2 speed Game rods for deep water (hapuku) can be hired with stand- up harness for $125/day. These are heavy duty. (or bring your own rods)

Salt ice in huge cool bins for your catch. We suggest you bring an esky (chillybin) but keep it in your car. Large plastic bags provided to transport your catch. Please bring your own bait. However if you run out we have salted down mullet and bonito. Strips of fresh squid or kahawai would be more successful. We provide berley (its very tricky getting it down deep so we release it at certain depth stages.)We use fish attractant sauces and smelly oils.

Tidal variations need careful consideration. Your skipper will consider all these factors to make catching possible.( with the aid of electronic sounders and fish finders).

Please bring only one bag or backpack per angler. We need the room for large reels, super large fish bags and safety equipment. Boat leaves promptly . Please arrive at least 15 mins prior to departure.

We encourage fish release when possible. Hope to see you on the water.
