What to Expect

Join owner/skipper Mike Hanham and First Mate Karen on Da Rottie  a White Pointer 850 purpose built fishing vessel. Da Rottie is well set up for fishing and diving including a few home comforts such as an on board flush toilet.
We offer half or full day trips to The Mercury Islands, Alderman Islands, Cathedral Cove, Hauraki Gulf and other scenic areas. If you have a specific requirement for an event or group we can hopefully help out. We also try to make up groups from casual travellers wanting a fishing experience.

Hello Garry and Lee,

I hope that you are both keeping well. Just a short email to let you know that we arrived home safely last night after our fantastic trip where we had few days of unbelievable fishing at Whitianga.

We all came away with some great memories as all of us had the opportunity to experience some of the best fishing that Whitianga has to offer. So, on behalf of my group that came over for this trip, I would like to thank you both for once again providing your wonderful hospitality and the very friendly atmosphere that has become an important part of Catch Charters. This alone is what keeps us coming back every year and I would like to congratulate you both for providing the best fishing charter experience ever. You two always make us feel welcome and we always have a great time on your boat.

And then there was the outstanding Snapper fishing, especially on the first day, when you put us on to plenty of decent sized fish ranging from 2kg and up to my p.b. Snapper for this trip that topped out the scales at 6.6kg. This was the highlight of the day for me but the rest of group were also happy as we landed quite a few fish of around the 4kg mark.

Well, that is about it from me for now but I would like to finish by wishing you both all the very best for the future and I hope that we get the chance to catch up sometime, either here in Sydney or, better still, in beautiful Whitianga.

Until then, please take care and hope to talk to you soon.

Best Regards

On behalf of the other seven guys in my group, I would like to once again thank you and Lee for your fantastic hospitality and first class customer service that you provide for us whenever we have the chance to go fishing with Catch Charters. Although the fish were a bit tough to find the first day, you were right on the money with your spot selection for the second day as it turned out to be one of the best snapper fishing sessions ever!! It is one of those magic moments in fishing that none of us will ever forget and to experience a hot bite, from top quality snapper, was classic and we hope that we can do that again the next time we come over to Whitianga. I would highly recommend to anyone one wanting to experience Whitianga Snapper and Kingy fishing at its best to book a day or two out with your excellent charter.

5 Star. Brilliant day out fishing! Garry and Leigh were the perfect hosts, ensuring everyone on board were fully equipped and enjoyed themselves. We'll definitely be back!

Spacious boat. Great service. Very experienced deckhand. The crew went above expectations to ensure fish were caught.

Thank you so much, Gunnar Wiese
