Fishing still steady

More generally good weather last week, with the fishing still steady.

A midweek trip to the Pinnacles saw mainly tarakihi coming up, but  things slowed down and moving back to the shallower water brought more tarakihi, but also a lot of small snapper.

A half day with Rangiora High School rugby players around the Middle Ground meant more little snapper, but  there were some well legal, up to 3kg+ amongst them, plus the usual trevally and rat[small]  kingies, an entertaining afternoon for the boys.

Saturday was similar, but with less of the sizable ones, so we ended up outside Motiti and had  a  good hit on the tarakihi initially, not as long as we’d like, alas.

Sunday was back to the Pinns, some more good tarakihi, but also a good number of skipjack on the lures, a nice  bonus,  we haven’t had that many this season.

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron
