Good amounts of fish caught
10 July 2018

We went out on Thursday and had a reasonable day, quite good amounts of fish caught, but it entailed a lot of reanchoring. We’d catch a few, then nothing, reanchor catch a few, nothing reanchor, etc etc. The tarakihi have finished spawning, and they’re pretty relaxed at present, just feeding when they feel in the mood, which is less than the fishers would like. We went back to another shallower spot and did ok initially, then back to bait stealing.

Saturday we tried a few different spots to normal, and were pleasantly surprised to find an area where they, mainly tarakihi, but an assortment of species including a nice kingy, went quite consistently for some time. A bit easier than Thursday.

Sunday’s forecast was bad, but about 12hours late, so we could have got the day in.

  • 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
