Captain Nick New, known locally as Trickshot' is one of the most knowledgeable and respected Captains in the Bermuda charter fleet. Having discovered his passion for fishing at the age of 6, he has never looked back. With his father, Nick fished with the top charter boats of the day in his youth, learning skills and techniques that he has worked and improved on through time. After finishing school, there was no question that the one path for him was on the water. He worked tirelessly as a mate with the very best of local Captains until buying his first boat, the 'Trickshot' in 1990.

"Trickshot" and Captain Nick quickly became established on the commercial fishing scene and to this day, Nick operates her alongside the Reel Hot  year round, both fishing and hauling lobster pots when in season. He has held his lobster license for 10 years and in 2015 signed up to support the Bermuda Lionfish Taskforce 

He is now one of only 4 licensed fishermen who are trapping and killing this invasive species to help keep our local fisheries safe.  

In 2007, Nick realized his childhood dream and added the Reel Hot to his fleet. Following extensive upgrades our first charter was in May of 2007 and Nick hasnt stopped since!A legendary figure in the fishing circles of Bermuda, he has also competed in tournaments overseas, winning the Governors Cup in South Carolina. He has been hired for countless ocean crossings and boat deliveries, and as a Captain's guide for International fishing boats in Bermuda. On both the Reel Hot and Trickshot, Nick is a strong competitor in the Bermuda tournaments, having won awards across the board  in events and categories from Light Tackle to Biggest Blue Marlin.

Captain Nick's life is fishing- it is both his passion and his livelihood. He wants every charter who steps on his boat to experience that passion and have the best day on the water, catching the biggest fish he can find them- enjoying themselves the way he knows best! You can be sure that he will do everything he possibly can to make sure you have the best day of fishing that Bermuda can offer!
