9 M Aluminium catamaran Boat for rough water game fishing

The Gambler  is a maximum width 9 m charter fishing vessel working out of Whakatane harbour. Game Fishing with Mickey is a treat and when out for a days hard fishing the rewards are great. 

Many Whakatane record fish have been caught on the Gambler, and there is always the excitement of fishing whilst viewing a live volcano at the same time. A treat in itself with an added bonus of never coming home empty handed from the sea.
