An overnighter to Mayor
21 August 2018
0 0

We got Monday in to start the week with good conditions and slightly slower fishing. Not sure why, they are a bit touchier at this time of year, done spawning and just chilling out a bit, I guess. Still, we had some dolphins around and it’s looking more like spring.

An overnighter to Mayor got off to a good start with a good haul of snapper on the way out. An early start saw the tarakihi going hard up until we went looking for some deeper species. We got a reasonable bluenose first drop, then the wind picked up and the fish stopped biting. Picked up a gemfish but that was that.

Sunday we got Saturday’s  weather, a beautiful calm day and good fishing around Astrolabe, with a lot of nice sized snapper and tarakihi, so  a good week overall.

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards

    Alan Chamberlain
