Fishing good, despite cyclone Lusi
19 March 2014
0 0

The week was dominated by the news that a cyclone was heading down from the tropics. Huge drama, people buying out supermarkets in preparation for the event. It all seemed a bit over the top, given that it was supposed to hit on Saturday, blow over by Sunday and be fine by  Monday.

Which it was, the Metservice got that right more or less.

So, we  cancelled the weekends trips, naturally, which was a pity, as we’d had good weather and fishing up to then, with an overnighter and day trip both catching a good variety of fish.

Mayor and the deeper reefs are producing well, the drift fishing was a bit slower, although we still got bluenose and gemfish, just a bit off the bite compared to recent trips.

  • 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
