A Lot of Plankton and Krill Being Seen
5 November 2014
0 0

We had a couple of short days early in the week, which reinforced the fact that the fish have not shown up in the shallower water.

We covered a lot of ground in the 2 days, East and West Pudney, the Okaparus , Middle Ground, and outside Motiti, and pretty well all fish caught were in deeper than 60m.

As mentioned earlier, theres still a lot of plankton and krill being seen and I think this is a big part of the slow fishing.

November has started well, so if we continue with this settled weather, hopefully we’ll see a bit more action.

Saturday we went back to the deep water, and it was still a bit slow, but a lot better overall.

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
