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.

 

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

    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
