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!

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thanks Brett for taking us out yesterday, most had a great day especially Peter who caught the big king fish.

  • 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

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
