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.

  • 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
