An overnighter to Mayor
21 August 2018

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

  •  

    Hi,
    Just to say thank you Brett and Des for making our fishing trip last Sunday so enjoyable. You were both so helpful.We all had a great day and have been eating fish all week!

    Thanks again
    Jacquie and Cornelia

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron

    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
