Capt Nick Stack aka Stacky

Some people are just born to be on the ocean.  Stacky realised at a very young age that the ocean is where he wanted to be.  He’d watch commercial captains come back to port while he was fishing off the Whangamata wharf and dreamt one day that would be him.  At the age of 12 he got an invitation to fish the legendary waters of Hawaii and landed a 351lb Blue Marlin.  He was hooked!!!  Stacky spent many years fishing the waters off Whitianga, Tairua and Whangamata commercially, both crayfishing and long lining so the reefs like the back of his hand.  In his spare time he’d chase kingfish, snapper and marlin by himself and with his fishing mates.  A year with one of Tairua’s popular charter Companies gave Stacky the taste for fishing tourism and he was hooked.  Now Stacky is doing the business day in day out for Skyline Charters and its customers.  He looks forward to taking you on a fishing adventure you will never forget.
