We tried a few variations on the normal routine last week, which yielded some interesting results.

Went to the Pinns midweek and had a good day with a good mixture of snapper and tarakihi through the day.

We then headed back out on an evening trip, trying inside Karewa after a pretty grim effort around the Middle Ground the week before.

It didn’t start well  with only a few kahawai, but checking an old mark paid off, with a good lot of snapper until about 9.30.

Next day was a kids fishing trip, so we stayed close off Omanu to Papamoa and did well on the snapper there, not fast but steady all day, making everyone happy.

Good enough I tried it again on Sunday. Lightning didn’t strike twice though, some came up, slower than Saturday,  so we worked our way to outside Motiti, and most did ok, mainly snapper, with a few tarakihi and trevally and one nice kingy  was a bonus.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
