A Note From Skipper Wayne

“I have been a Commercial Fisherman on the Kaipara Harbour for 30 years, Charter Skipper for over 13 years. I enjoy meeting new people and the challenges that rod fishing brings. Often my clients comment on how great the Kaipara fishing is. I look forward to having a great day together.”
