Headed Out Towards Mayor on Saturday Morning
10 June 2015
0 0

Nothing much happened midweek, not particularly good conditions, but the weekend looked good, so we headed out towards Mayor on Saturday morning.

The forecast was for light N.Easterlies and there was a  bit of swell, but a couple of miles  before the Pinns it really got bad and  conditions were pretty well unfishable, so back we came.

It was a bit of a mystery at first, but the only fish sign was on the Western side, I realized then it was a strong Westerly current, opposite to the swell, standing it up to 2 to 3 m. A real slopfest.

By Sunday it was calm, no current, a beautiful sunny day and good fishing. 24 hours can be a very long time in this game.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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
