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

  • 5.1.2010

    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

    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
