Fishing experience at Eagles Nest, Russell, Bay of Islands, New Zealand


Join Captain Hamish Faire on his 10 metre sport fishing boat ‘LEGEND‘, for simply the best fishing experience there is.

Hamish has been fishing the Bay of Islands and the North East coast of New Zealand all his life and as a professional for over 20 years.  He has won numerous fishing tournaments, and has recorded the most game fish for the Bay of Islands Swordfish Club for the last few years.

 Hamish is a master at targeting Marlin, Tuna, Yellowtail Kingfish, Hapuku and Snapper.

The boat is comfortable, with plenty of shelter from the elements and a separate toilet.  There are cooking facilities, a fridge, and tea and coffee is complimentary.  Full catering is available by prior arrangement.

 The fishing equipment on board is of the highest quality, as is the friendly guidance.  Bait and tackle are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own if you wish.  Your catch will be prepared to your liking ready to cook, or it can be smoked by our local professional smoker.
