Good numbers of skippies coming up on the lures

Only a couple of days last week, the weather’s getting more variable now.

We went out Tuesday and had another good day with another good mix of tarakihi and snapper, and yet again, good numbers of skippies coming up on the lures.

We’ve caught more of them in the last few trips than over the whole of the summer. Although the South and SWesterlies coming up will probably push them back to the tropics.

Too much SW for the Saturday, but we got the Sunday in. A bit sloppier than forecasted, the wind didn’t really drop like the forecast predicted so the Metservice were a bit out there. But generally their forecasting has been quite a bit better.

They went through a long period where they were very accurate, then got quite bad for the last few years, so hopefully they’ll continue to be on the money.

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards

  • 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
