My husband has owned a boat for ten years and has spent the last five years using charter boats to go to different places and different experiences and has never ever ever met a fisherman like this. Half day charter- launch at six pm, three hours baiting six craypots with rotten bait, one hours fishing --NO FISH, full price. Next day went to hot spot, Kahwai were breaking the gear, next spot refused to fish- to clear.
Went home sick????. No target fish,--FULL PRICE.
Caught three Kahwai, pinched one for his tea, that's how good it was.Erland Ostberg i agree with your reveiw!!!!!!

Been in NZ for 7 months and this was our worst experience. Fishing trip, our family, 2 kids under 8. If you do not hold the rod as Justin wants, he gets angry, close to aggressive. Unbelievable. Takes the boat to rough sea despite that the kids are crying for fear and we ask him kindly to go back. The whole trip was a nightmare, do not go out with this guy especially if you have children.
