Another week of good weather right up until the weekend

Another week of good weather right up until the weekend, when things degenerated  and another 3 trips had to be  canned. It’s all part of the game, but it doesn’t stop it from being a bit frustrating.

Especially  Southeasterlies,  it can look quite settled on shore, but once you get a mile  or two out the breeze comes up and with it the short, steep and shapeless chop.

Still, we got Wednesday in, and it was another perfect winter’s day, with more good catches of mainly tarakihi and snapper.

We also saw some orca, not a common sight in the winter, they’re normally around in the summer months, often targeting the stingrays in the harbour.

There’s also been lots of seagulls and terns feeding  a few miles out, not sure what on, possibly whitebait, although it seems a bit early for them. Time will tell I guess.

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 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
