Easing the winter blues
21 July 2014
0 0

A few more sunny days and a good days fishing outside Motiti eased the winter blues a little.

The areas we’d been working previously produced a few tarakihi then eased off, so after a couple of moves we tried a bit further East.

The current, which had been quite stiff, dropped an hour or two after the tide change, and as it did, we started getting quite a lot of snapper, along with good quantities of tarakihi.

The tarakihi are well into spawning now, and they tend to be fussier with their feeding once it’s over, still there, but not as motivated if conditions aren’t to their liking.

Theoretically they should be moving into shallower water now, but we’ve seen no evidence of it, so we’ll stay deep until things change.

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
