Big swell slows fishing at Mayor, but Motiti providing good catches
9 April 2014

Another interesting week, starting off with more settled weather and a couple of trips out to the Pinns, where the fishing was still pretty good, mainly tarakihi, but picking up skippies both on the way out and back. They’re a bonus at this time of year.

The swell was huge on  Friday at Mayor, and killed our overnighter , we got a few snapper in the evening, but only a half dozen fish the next day.

Just too much disturbance for the fish and they were off everywhere.

Another overnighter, this time staying at Motiti, saw some snapper off Papamoa in the evening, and quite a good catch  Sunday around the Okaparus, including a few tarakihi.

The swell had dropped inshore but was still big on our ‘puku drops, so 1 bass and a gemfish were about it for the deep.

    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.

  • Thanks Brett for taking us out yesterday, most had a great day especially Peter who caught the big king fish.
