As much snapper as tarakihi
10 May 2017
0 0

The fishing has been a bit slower in the last week, but still very good. We’re catching as much snapper as tarakihi, which makes a change. And still picking up  skippies, more now than  earlier in the season,

We had a weekend overnighter and that went well, likewise, a lot more snapper around Mayor in addition to the tarakihi and trevally.

Our drift fishing was slower, but there is still a lot of current making things harder. We got some small bluenose, and some of the smallest gemfish we’ve seen, so called in at the Penguins for the first time in ages, and after a couple of misses, ended up with a top up of good snapper and a couple more big trevs.

Beautiful conditions the whole time, excellent.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

  • 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
