My name is Michael Ruru and I am the owner-operator of ‘Opotiki Fishing Charters’. We have been running successfully since 2002.
With nearly 20 years experience I can take you to where the fish are and will help to ensure you get it into the boat.
This is a full service, fully guided vessel, you’re not just handed a rod and left to look after yourself. Running multiple trips per week, means I know exactly where the fish are, and I know what tactics are working.
Our Safety Equipment
Mike’s local knowledge and experience ensures he does everything he can to provide you with a successful trip both on and off the water and we have some great photos that are proof of this. The area Mike fishes provides a great chance of an XOS Snapper or Kingi, or just fish to feed the family. Quality fishing gear is supplied along with bait so all you need to do is lift and wind.
“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day... Show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime...”
