Good weather and fishing

Another productive week of bottom fishing, with good weather and fishing.

Still predominately tarakihi, with a few trevally, and the very odd snapper, although they’re apparently being caught in  the harbour.

We’ve heard of a few skippies being caught out wide, and several  marlin  were caught in the weekend’s competition but still nothing local yet.

We had an overnighter to Mayor Friday/Saturday, a good keen crew, and after a sloppy trip out some fished through the night, catching a mix of snapper, tarakihiu  and porae, nice sized fish too.

After some more bottom fishing next morning, we did some kingfish jigging, good fun, got a few small ones and one so nice that a mako took it, left us the head though, which was good  of him. At least we saw how big it had been. Dragged a few lures around and got a couple more,  but none sizeable. Good fun though.

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!
