Fishing good, despite cyclone Lusi
19 March 2014

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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thanks Brett for taking us out yesterday, most had a great day especially Peter who caught the big king fish.

  • 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

  • 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
