Captain Lenny

I started running charters in 1987 achieved my NZ CLM in 1992.

With an ancestry of traditional canoe travel up and down both coasts of the North Island a granddad that worked the ferries of Auckland and a father that hunted, fished and free dived. Growing up with Aunts and Uncles addicted to all forms of gathering seafood is it any wonder fishing is my passion.

I’ve been very lucky in my fishing life having worked with some Skippers who knew where the fish would be at any given time of the day. Used to think some of those Skippers were part fish. My education included learning about all the creatures that lived above the water, in the water and in the ground beneath the water. My Skippers helped me understand how important it is that everything that exists and happens in this land has an effect on your success in fishing.


Unhelpful (to the clients) cheeky (to the Skipper and clients) bossy (to the skipper) but when things go to custard they can be relied on to be Obstreperous
