Hooked Up Charters Auckland

We provide recreational fishermen the best opportunity to catch large fish in the Hauraki Gulf.

About the Captain

Over the years I have been referred to as Captain Lozza and it’s stuck.  I have been fishing these waters for the past 20 years in a variety of vessels and I am very familiar with the Hauraki Gulf.   

I have been lucky to have learnt from the best, one in particular, who I won’t name as he is the modest type but he is most certainly a true fishing Guru. He has vast experience as a commercial and recreational fisher in the Hauraki and especially the Coromandel region. As is the case with all forms of traditional hunting disciplines, the Master passes on his skills and knowledge to the apprentice. I was the apprentice for many years, also learning from other great anglers and after completing my SRL Skippers ticket last year I have graduated to Master.

Our Playground – Hauraki Gulf Fishing Charters

This wonderful body of water is the gateway to everything required to make your experience out with Hooked Up Charters an adventure not to be forgotten.

The Gulf is a holding ground for many of New Zealand’s most popular recreational fishing species. The various Islands and Coromandel Peninsula also provide a perfect environment for these species to flourish not to mention great protection from the elements. Hooked up Charters specifically targets big Snapper and Kingfish and will explore the Gulf to its outer reaches in search of the biggest of these species.

Over the years, Laurie has collated many spots that hold snapper all year round or at certain times of the year. He has also marked out structures known for holding Kingfish and it’s his knowledge of these locations that give him the edge when catching you the big one. The Hauraki is also well known for its abundance of school fish and its frequency of massive work ups. These work ups will also be targeted as they provide the opportunity for exciting fishing and are also an amazing spectacle. Gannets diving, fish on the surface of the water and the chance of seeing dolphins and whales are added bonus to catching big snapper and kingfish.

The weather does not always cooperate when going fishing but with the many islands and subsequent shelter that is provided, the Hauraki still gives Laurie the chance to go to spots where the big ones can be caught.
