Cyclonic conditions, but still good bottom fishing
23 April 2014

The Metservice did themselves proud last week. The tail end of the cyclone that hit before Easter was about 10 times worse than the one that got the full week’s advance warnings 5 weeks ago-which did blow and rain a bit. They celebrated the miscall by then getting the next 4 days forecasts just as badly wrong. Lots of wind when there was none, not much when it was pumping, changing directions and speed with every forecast, then reverting to what they’d predicted 2/3 days earlier. Very impressive. And not unusual. They were excellent for years, but the last 18 months or so have seen a big decline  in accuracy.

So Saturday’s Hapuku trip was a bust, but the bottom fishing over the next couple of days was good, less snapper, but more tarakihi  in the deeper water outside Motiti and around Mayor[until the 30/35+kn NW] blew us away.

  • 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
