I've been out on fishing trips with Nick at Sandspit Fishing Charters a number of times on both snapper and kingfish trips and they're awesome. Nick's a great character, knows his stuff, always gets us on the fish, he uses top quality gear (can use your own if you prefer but his is top of the line stuff) and is... More

Had a fantastic day fishing with Nic out near Coromandel. Started with a beautiful sunrise. We all hooked up to good fish and enjoyed success. Great gear and a constant supply of lures and jigs to tempt the fish. The small 'octopus' lures were my fav! Snapper, Kawai, Gurnard and John Dorey were landed on the day. Will be back... More

We hooked up on a reasonable spot - only to find someone had not read the website and had bought a banana onto the boat! I hooked into a couple of kingfish, Plenty of... More

We took a 6-hour fishing trip on Saturday morning and had a fantastic time. All gear and bait (and expertise) provided, and Nick was an excellent host. We caught our full snapper quota well within our 6 hours, plus three Kahawhai, 2 John Dory (who didn't seem to mind that it wasn't live bait), and 1 Kingfish, would have been... More

A great day's fishing - lots of snapper, kingfish, kahawai and gurnard. Nick was very knowledgeable, helpful and relaxed. Good fishing spot. Tangles lines - not a problem
