Cheers Fishing Club and Shallow Water Fishing
5 November 2013
0 0

We went outside Motiti on Wednesday, Town Pt had been ok but fairly ordinary, so we tried the deeper water again. Not a bad day, mainly tarakihi and a few snapper and good calm conditions.

Saturday we had Cheers fishing club, a fair load on fishers, and thought Town Pt's shallower water would be the good option.

Which it was, plenty of fish, excellent conditions and a good bunch of people enjoying the day.

So Sunday was a no  brainer, back to Town Pt. Conditions were perfect, even better than Saturday, except, no fish. We did all the spots we'd been pulling them up the day before for nothing. Well, 3 tarakihi and a couple of scorpionfish.

Steamed outside Motiti, still nothing until about 1.30, then they punched the clock and went hard until we left, filling the chilli bins with plenty of fish.

It's an interesting game, this, and a good demonstration of just how fickle fish can be.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

  • 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
