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

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
