Currents dropping leading to good fishing
7 March 2014
0 0

A busy week for us, and a pretty good one in terms of conditions and fish caught.

The erratic and contradictory currents and sea conditions we were experiencing seem to have dropped away and better fishing is the result.

The deeper water is where we’ve been working mainly and the tarakihi have been going well, with the odd nice snapper in the mix.

A part day on Saturday saw us around Karewa, nothing much in under 20m, but outside the island we picked up a few sizeable snapper at most stops, enough for a reasonable day’s fishing. We also caught 3 or 4 tarakih, a couple of nice blue cod and a few kahawai to add a bit to the mix.

    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,

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
