The game fishing season is now well under way, although it is still very early in the season for marlin and, let’s face it, the weather has not been very conducive to any sort of fishing. However, the friendly team at FishingPro advise that their boat, the Gladiator, a 55 foot Salthouse sports fisher, is booked up for the coming season, and are confident it will be as successful as last season was. FishingPro is a part of Gladiator Marine, a respected family business of 20 years standing run by husband and wife team Ken and Donna Pascoe. Donna regularly gets out on Gladiator, keeping in touch with where the fish are and the current best techniques to catch the big ones.

Ken and Donna, and Gladiator Marine, have established FishingPro, for serious fishers and they have several charter boats in the Bay of Islands, Auckland and Tauranga exclusively aimed at taking keen fisher men and women out to catch ‘the big one’. The advantage of booking with FishingPro is that their clients will always get the most honest information on the boat conditions and crew and all fishing, guiding and boating requirements are met with dependable, friendly and professional service.

The majority of Gladiator’s trips during the game fishing season are multi-day trips, with the guests enjoying the luxury of staying on board the boat, with all the comforts of home, including Sky TV, roast dinners and full cooked breakfasts every morning, along with the spacious sleeping arrangements for all the guests.

Donna is in the business of helping anglers realise their dreams in catching the big one that all anglers dream about and, to this end, she likes keeping in touch with where the fish and the current best techniques to catch the big ones and, of course, spending time talking to their fishing captains and reviewing boats and crew on the water to keep her well informed to know which vessel is right for which client.
