Experience counts

Operating since 2005 Epic are well known for putting people on to awesome kingfish action! Chasing big kingfish, hapuka (groper) and snapper year round and game fish in season. We run day trips out of Whitianga to the Mercs, Aldermens or Cuvier, or fully packaged sport fishing holidays. Bookings are essential.

Fish with the best

We have a proven track record of catching big kingfish day in day out, and putting anglers from all around the world on to the fish of their dreams. A reputation for being the go-to charter operator for serious sportfishing on the Coromandel.

What to expect

A typical day on the water is eight hours, and will see us catching livebaits on the coast before travelling out to the islands or deeper reefs to chase kingfish using a variety of methods including livebait, jigging, stickbaits and poppers and softbaits. We have all the top of the line rods and reels you need, as well as the required terminal tackle. You are more than welcome to bring any gear along you have as well.

We also love chasing big snapper either on softbaits, deep drifted livies or straylining. Of course there are plenty of nice sized hapuku for the table mooching around the deeper reefs as well! Kingfish, snapper and hapuku can be caught year round. In the summer and autumn we also chase striped marlin, blue marlin and the gladiator – the mighty broadbill swordfish!

Top boats

Epic Adventures operate three custom made sport fishing Senator boats. These have the best electronics, top guides and the best fishing gear and are widely recognised as the go-to Coromandel fishing charter.

Day was truly epic, Tom is definitely the man to go out with! Very knowledgeable and patient, going out of the way to make sure we had an awesome day. We will be back.

Booked 3 days with these guys and first 2 were cancelled due to bad weather, however, we were able to make alternative arrangements and extend our trip. Spent day 1 fishing with Chris at the Anglers Lodge for snapper where my boyfriend caught 2 huge snapper. 1st one caught on the first drop, also had some fun trying to hook up to some kingies which were around. Chris gave us a good laugh and found us a good spot to fish in despite the windy weather and choppy swell. We didn't plan on going snapper fishing but we are glad that we got the opportunity to with such an attentive skipper and would recommend it. Railed by a "rat!" Day 2 was spent with Tom on Mad Max 2 and boy does this skipper work hard to get you onto a fish. We spent the first half of the day trolling for Marlin and the second half fishing for kingfish. Tom would continually strive to find you bigger fish than the last spot you were in - would definitely recommend him. Day 3 was spent with Owen on Coroking and he made accommodations for us to start slightly earlier for the day as we had to leave early. Learnt a whole bunch off him which we could put back into practice when fishing back home. Our lucky last troll for the day caught my bf a big fat 24kg kegger of a specimen. Would also like to thank Roy and Jen for keeping us well informed in regards to what was happening with our trip days and for organising the snapper fishing trip at Anglers Lodge at such late notice. We will definitely be back sooner rather than later! Hopefully without the seasickness for me!

If you like catching Kingfish and lots of them, go with these guys and get your arms stretched. Technique is livebaiting yellowtail scad in anywhere from 50 -90m of water, jigging can be done as well. Models are around the high teens to mid 20kg mark, and if they are on there's lots of them! Snapper, Hapuka and Bass are in the mix as well. Owen is an excellent skipper with a fast boat, all gear is top notch Shimano Stellas/Talica/Ocea Jigger. Highly recommended!

Amazing two days on the Coroking. Owen is a star. I learnt plenty and quickly. I will be back and could not recommend highly enough.
