Testimonials

Not just a fishing tale. Here are some testimonials from clients that chose to fish with us.


Nomad Sportfishing has been our favourite annual fishing charter for many years now.  Many of my friends have caught their personal best Kingfish with Ben and he helped me to catch my fish of a lifetime a few years ago. The reason we come back is because Ben knows how to put you on the fish. Ben’s easy going manner and massive amount of knowledge and experience makes this fishing trip special. Ben is always happy to share his extensive knowledge and tricks so that you not only take away a feed but new skills to put in to action yourself. When I get asked who to charter for big fish I never hesitate to recommend Ben Pokaia of Nomad Sportfishing NZ

I have been lucky enough to have fished with fishing charter operations all around the world, and I am yet to meet or fish with a charter Skipper who works harder for the fisherman. Capt Ben & Briar put in the hard yards before you even hit the water. Keeping you up to date with weather, gear to bring and possible situations for the day. Fishing with Ben is exciting and there is never any shortage of possibilities, whether it is Jigging or live baiting for HUGE Kingfish, bottom bouncing for BIG Blue nose, Hapuka and Bass right through to all the billed species. Ben and the team have the experience, gear and right attitude to get you that fish of a lifetime!

"I have been fishing with Nomad over the past 4 years and will keep going back...why? BIG Kingfish!! Ben sure knows where the kingfish hangout at different times of the year and how to hunt down the bigger ones. The best chance of hooking a big kingfish is with Ben on Nomad”

Hi Ben

I can’t thank you enough for making my 50th  birthday and my Kingfish dream come true.

We decided for my 50th birthday to go to your great country and find a great charter to try my luck on catching the big Kingfish that I have dreamed about since watching TV shows in Australia.  I was not disappointed in anyway with my decision I got the great country, the great charter in yourself and the life time dream fish with my biggest at 40.8kg. So again Ben thank you for the greatest fishing trip of my life I also will be letting everyone know over here about my whole experience with Nomad and how fantastic it was.

I will be back over there again and I will look forward to going out with you and trying to better in round two.
