Had a great afternoon fishing with Darell from Megabites Fishing Charter. The man knows where they are biting. See you next time I'm in Auckland.

From my experience and dealings with Darrell I believe he is a truly dedicated businessman who strives to provide an excellent service to his customers. Fishing is just that fishing - you never know what you will catch or if they are on the bite - but I would choose Megabites everytime no matter what the conditions as I know... More

We, a group of 8 Swiss English students with very little (i.e none) fishing experience, set out on a nice Sunday morning with Darell in order to experience a real Kiwi adventure. AND WE JUST LOVED IT! Darell brought us to a great spot and after a few minutes the catching began and would not cease until everybody was exhausted.... More

With Darell as captain of LegASea you can be sure of a successful fishing day, even when fishing is slow, Darell will go out of his way to get you that fish. Every time l take someone out on Megabites Fishing Charters the feedback is positive - they are very impressed with the clean and tidy boat and with Darell's... More

A bit early in the season but Darell went out of his way to find some good spots for fishing. The boat was clean and the gear we used was reasonable for a charter. Great value and would recommend. We will certainly use Darell again when in Auckland.

Another awesome day out fishing with Darell/Megabites Fishing charters. By far the best fishing we've experienced. The boat is fast and always clean. Darell is safe and very helpful on the boat. Catch of the day, 12 pound snapper, 64cms...still on a high :-)

We had a great day with Darell on this charter. In our party we had four people, my boyfriend and parents. It was a great time for everyone. He is excellent about making sure everyone catches fish. He was willing to help everyone keep their poles and bait going to ensure maximum fishing time. We ended up spending more time... More

We have been fishing with Darrell on board Legasea for snapper twice and both days out fishing have been brilliant. We found Darrell to be highly organised and helpful. A great range of bait was supplied, and there was plenty of it. We loved the fact that Darrell was eager to find the fish, and was happy to try a... More
