Rods are available on the boat, Snapper rod hire is $20.00 each and light game rods are $30.00 each per day. We have basic tackle for the rods, but if you have your own rigs you are welcome to bring those. Rod hire covers the cost of basic stray line tackle and maintenance only. All tackle loaned or hired is on the understanding that if you lose it, or break it, you pay for it. Rods lost over the side incur a replacement charge of $300.00 (incl GST) and we appreciate payment to the skipper on the day of the loss.
Bait, Wayne recommends approx 2-3 Kg of Pilchards each, plus a mixture of, Squid and a bag or two of Mullet and a couple of Skipjack Tuna, also one or two large berley bombs and salt ice to take your fish home chilled. To pre-order, please let us know proir to departure and we will have ready for you on the boat on the morning of your trip.
Food, Bring anything easy to eat such as bacon and egg pie, filled rolls, sandwiches and chips etc. We have a fridge on board so can keep things cool and an oven to heat pies etc.
Drinks, Please bring your choice of refreshments in plastic bottles or cans. Tea and coffee is complimentary.
Clothing, If it is a wet, chilly day, you may need to bring a waterproof jacket and warm jumper.
Footwear, No black gumboots or black soled shoes please and shoes you can slip off easily are best as we have a ‘no shoes below’ rule on board.
Other, Don’t forget your hat, sunnies, insect repellent, sunscreen, camera etc.  
Prone to sea sickness? If you need to take a seasickness remedy, take it early, even the night before.
We have found the Paihia Chemists seasick remedy works really well when used that way.
