Good fishing in more areas, and great weather

March has been excellent so far, good fishing in more areas, and great weather.

We had some good days in the deeper water, although a lot of current on Friday slowed things down. Saturday was a cruise,  a stag do in the harbour for a few hours before trying around Karewa and having a good hit on snapper before it was time to head in.

We’d had a short day earlier in the week where I’d thought the middle ground might be worth another look. Wrong. A few snapper was it, so it’s still the area to avoid for me.

Sunday we worked around the Okaparus and west of Motiti and had another good day on snapper, and tarakihi once we got outside Motiti. Another great day weatherwise too.

We saw a couple of marlin jumping inside Mayor earlier in the week, and it sounds as if the One Base competitors also had a good comp., so good for all.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

    Tanya
