Brett was born to the sea. Being brought up in Campbell’s Bay, fishing, surfing and diving are in his blood. He knows almost every rock in the Mercury Bay region, the pinnacles around Great Barrier and the Mokes. This makes him a pretty knowledgeable man to go to on a fishing charter with. He always wanted to be a marine biologist and takes a special interest in the types of life living within the ocean. Brett has been a full skipper since 2002 and has 14 seasons running his charter fishing boat Double Rum.
“Fishing the Hauraki Gulf, every day, I found that each group brings about a very different experience. I sometimes get more excited than the guys pulling in the fish. The best days are the ones when everyone catches a fair few keepers. We try our hardest to achieve that result. We keep our lines tight and our guys never give up.”
Keep on fishing
