Thanks Stef,  It was great to be able to show the guys how great RnR is, I have been telling them how great it was for a long time and now they know!!  Please pass on my thanks again to Wayne, he knows the Mokes like the back of his hand!
We found a fish shop that will smoke some fish so all sorted on that front.
See you next time!

"Thanks Wayne, a weekend of firsts.
First Puka, first 10lb Snapper, first 20 lb snapper, first 22lb Snapper.
Awesome, well recommended. See you next time for another great trip!"


Hi all,  Wayne, Stef. I was an extra on Sundays trip, thoroughly enjoyed the trip out, top boat.
Wayne was laid back fishing was relaxed, nice to get around sail rock, for a looksee.
I have been on a few charters, nice not to get shouted at.
Top skipper thanks.

To Wayne Radford & Stef Railey

I knew a man once, he used to be an insurance salesman and a pretty successful one at that.
He quit the insurance business and opened a dive shop, in Colorado of all places. About as far from the ocean as you can get in the USA. He taught the PADI course I took for dive certification. When I asked him why he quit the insurance business, he said it was he was selling something no-one really wanted. He thought that by teaching diving he could add something of value to peoples lives that would stay with them always.

You did that for us today. Our trip and your hospitality will stay with us always.

There probably have been and will be, days when you wonder if it was a good decision to charter and at some time in the future you may decide to do something else, but you will always know that you touched peoples lives and added something of value.

Thanks for a great trip

“I just had an awesome two days out at Great Barrier and The Mokohinaus on RnR out of Mangawhai Heads. Wayne is a great skipper with excellent knowledge of the area, fantastic cooking skills and a great CD collection.
If you like catching big snapper and kingfish I recommend you call Wayne.”

I look forward to the next outing.

Cheers, Brad

Hi, Stef/Wayne
Well I have to say RNR Charters always leaves me with some form of memories to say the least but not unfortunately not for the right things this time. No-ones fault just my body let me down.

Anyway the boys and I want to thank Wayne for getting us out there and putting us/them onto the fish.

Ya a legend Wayne and I know you'll find them every time and you're a great skipper . Cheers.

Oh and I can promise you we will be back for another round, hopefully not as punishing as the last one though. ha ha.
Cheers for everything. 
Karim, Ben, JP, Richard

Wayne, Thanks again for a great day out.


We will be planning another outing in the future for sure.


Quentin wants to come back and get the huge snapper he saw last time.


Cheers , Dean.

Dear Wayne & Stef,
 Chuan, Thomas & I would like to thank you for the great trip.

Thanks for a fantastic fishing day April 8th
I had forgotten how great the fishing is in NZ.
I am a Kiwi living in Sale Vic, 250 klms east of Melbourne. I work on the oil rigs in the Bass Strait, and fish quite often, but I have never caught or seen a snapper of that quality.
I will try and get across the ditch in the near future to give Robbie Cullen the shits and show him how its done.
Well thanks again from myself and my son Stan who lives in Auckland .Must go and send Email and photo proof to unbelieving mates.

Thanks for making it happen over the last two days. Very generous of you to put us up weds night and to keep charter cost to same as overnighter.
We finished our surgery at 6-30pm and had a ton of meat each!
Highlight for each for us – catching our first Puka.
I am keen to do an overnighter next year early March or late April, preferably Wed/Thurs again if you can suggest some dates.
Can we arrange 5 knots winds again!

Just wanted to thank you again for last weekend.  Nathan and I spent Monday driving around the (Great Barrier) island showing off our fish.  Now I think the whole Island wants a weekend on RnR Charters. 
Sorry we didn’t  offer you any fresh fish, it skipped all our minds. 
Are you  able to  email me some of the  good photos if  that is not too  much trouble.
Also what two days in November do you think  would be good days to fish?
Thanks again, 
Thank you for an awesome day on Saturday.
We all had a great time & will be telling our mates to look you up when they want a charter.
Can you please send me the photos of Craig’s Snapper & my Kingie please.

We had an awesome day out.
Thanks heaps for the effort you put in for us (and for your patience!).  Whilst (it was a tough day) we have caught bigger snaps, that days fishing rates as close to the best for us and we look forward to joining up with you again one day soon. I’m thinking of bring a few staff from my Hamilton site up for a day at the Mokes mid week,
How are your bookings looking?
Anyway thanks again.

Best thanks for a magnificent day out. Carol and I got home to see the pix last night and they’re great shots.
We appreciated the way you worked hard to give us a very memorable day out, and recovered from some testing amateur gear handling
(ie from me) in the best of humour.
Our group were rank amateurs, and one of the many great things about the day was the way you made it the best possible experience for us, as we imagine you do for groups of all levels of experience and skill. 
You very patiently untangled my birdnests plus the line snagged around the propeller and ensured that Carol and I caught magnificent snapper which were the thrills of our fishing lives. 
We also just plain had a fantastic day out being shown around the Hen and Chickens and Sail Rock which we and our friends will always look back on with great pleasure. And all this for non-paying customers who as jammy golfers had the good fortune to win the trip by fluking a Mangawhai Golf Club team’s tournament win!
We bbq-ed one of the fish next day, having gilled and gutted when we got home, and filleted the other one. The eating was beautiful and gave us a fun night around the bbq with guests next day.
Thanks again for what you did for us.
Best regards
Peter O’Hara    
Just a quick thank you from our party for a successful trip even though some were a little under the weather.
All commented that your nature and service was the best we have come across (and we have taken a few charters  over the years) which is a credit to you.

Of note was that you were there when needed and helped the less experienced but would let the others do their thing.
Great trip and thanks again.
Much appreciated and we will catch up with you at Mangawhai again some time.
- Cheers John T -

Just a little note to say thanks for the hospitality.  It was a delight to catch up with both of you again, spend a day in your little patch of paradise and we enjoyed the fishing. 
All the very best.
- Brian and Barbara -
Thanks for the great trip!
Great to see the charter business is pumping!
Getting punters onto fish day after day must be tough! However, I'm sure you've got the right approach!!!
Cheers Dale R
We had a fabulous day -
Thanks again.
I'm having difficulty getting people to believe that is me and I did catch those fish!!! 

(As for the 'one that got away' breaking the rod...Warwick is standing by his belief that it was my technique!!!)
We have fridge  full of fish that is rapidly getting eaten and lots of great stories - thanks again!
Kind regards

Thanks for a great weekend, the trip was a great break from the reality of the 9-5.
I appreciated  your patience with a very non fishing person.
My boy Finn would love to see the photo
that was taken.

With regard to the charter we did,we all had a very really enjoyable
time. We have been on a few
charters and RnR has been the
only one the team has repeated.
The two trips have been our most
successful fishing charters and that all goes well for a possible trip next year.
All the best.

Yes, thank you so much.  Great photos and it was a great trip.  Everyone enjoyed themselves. Fantastic Day.
Thank you so much.....You have great knowledge of fishing and that was a real asset for us. 
I've definitely gained a few tips from the trip."

" just a short note to thank you for a great day out on Wednesday last week.  All of us totally enjoyed the fishing.
Through our various jobs we have many clients who enjoy fishing and we will have no hesitation in recommending your charter to them in the future."
