Good snapper around the Okaparus

A few days off this week as we slipped the Manutere for a bottom clean and antifouling.

A good time to do it as the weather was fairly ordinary, the rain not helping with the painting initially, but was ok by Thursday.

We had a short day on the Friday, so worked a bit closer to home. Not a lot initially around the under 30m areas, but we found good snapper around the Okaparus, and tarakihi as well a bit further out.

Sunday we headed out deeper, and had some good fishing around the Pinns, which lasted till about 11.30, then it all went pretty quiet.

We fishing our way back, from 65  to under 30m but got very little more, good conditions, they just weren’t hungry. Oh, and we caught another skippy, fifth for the season!

  • 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

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards
