Full moon has always been the best for me

Back to the one day week last week. We had an overnighter Tuesday/ Wednesday but our evening fish was fairly unimpressive, about 6 snapper was all.

It was the dark of the moon though, and we’ve never caught much at night when it is. Some claim the opposite, but the full moon has always been the best for me.

Possibly the difference is the depth, harbour fishing and shallow water could well be better, but I fish deeper , 50m + most of the time, including when crayfishing in the ’80s and the full moon was best.

Anyway, the next morning was slow, and the Hapuku/bass fishing hopeless. No obvious reason, beautiful day  and conditions. No apparent current, in fact we drifted in a different direction every drop, so, that was that.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thanks for a fabulous day on the water. Just ate some great fish and washed it down with nz Pinot.

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards
