Have you been out fishing with mates only to spend hours loosing bait and go home empty handed? Well I suggest you take a trip out with Carl Pullan of 4 Reel Fishing Charters in the Bay of Islands! Carl is one of these naturals – he has been fishing all his life and it just made sense to share his love of the sport with travelers and local alike. The first thing you will notice about Carl is his down to earth no bullshit attitude. “Do you wanna catch fish” Yep “Then listen to me and let me bait up your line each time” Yes really he baits up your hook each time. I have been out with Carl on his boat just twice (So far). My partner and I had together one of those times. Within minutes of lowering our lines we had not one but two keeps on – both Snapper. The funny thing was this was a “Number Two Spot” – you don’t get to see his number 1 spots unless the first one fails. Doesn’t happen often I hear and it didn’t happen on my two trips either.
