Tisha MacInnes - deckhand

Tenakoutou katoa, ko Tisha MacInnes toku ingoa, no Kororareka ahau.

Hello all, my name is Tisha MacInnes and I live in Kororāreka.  I am from Russell and am introducing myself as Deckhand for Spot X and Screaming Reels. 

As a local in Russell I have spent many years both recreationally and professionally in the Bay of Islands. 

My professional experience includes deckhand,  host and cook on commercial vessels in previous years and I now combine both my love of angling and my pleasure of sharing the unique marine experience of the Bay of Islands in my position aboard Screaming Reels. 

I welcome and invite you all to join us aboard Screaming Reels where you can experience the hospitality and angling adventures that are my privelidge to share with you.
