Cyclone Pam

We got the Monday in last week, a bit of a slow day at the Pinns, the size of the tarakihi wasn’t as good either, generally a good sign they’re not hungry.

We picked up  more around the 10mile to top things up though.

The rest of the week was a non event, mainly thanks to Cyclone Pam. The 5 days anticipation luckily wasn’t as bad as it could have been, but enough to kill the weekend.

I was crayfishing in Gisborne when Cyclone Bola hit, the destruction and damage on land and sea was  almost unbelievable and not  something I’d like to see again, even without pots in the water.

It will be interesting to see what it’s done to the fishing, though.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

  • 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

    Paul

  • 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
