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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • 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
