Another week of mainly good fishing

Another  week of mainly good fishing.

We’re still  working the area outside Motiti for the bottom fishing as it’s been the most consistent.  Thursday we only shifted twice all day, with mainly tarakihi ticking  along  all day.  Friday we went back to the same  spots and had a lot slower day. Tried other , shallower areas but no go anywhere.

Our overnighter saw a few snapper caught around Mayor that evening with good tarakihi fishing, minus a few to the tax collector[a  2.5m Mako].

We also got 6 albacore  and had a marlin jumping by the boat so a  double bonus. The drift fishing was slow, just a few bluenose.

Sat/Sun was similar,  with a nice hapuku, bass and small gemfish  caught before the N.E. slop got the better of some of the crew and we headed home.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    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
