Good weather and the fishing's

November continues it’s good weather and the fishing’s been…

What’s interesting is that we’ve been to spots, around Mayor and Motiti, seen sign and caught nothing, shifted around, still nothing, gone back to the original spot and done really  well . Very hard to explain

Possibly a combination of factors, plenty of food [ krill and plankton] midwater, underwater  turbulence, just not hungry, earthquakes, bananas, global warming, who can be sure.

The warmer water is on the way down though, we’re seeing heaps of jellyfish, already seen 3 sunfish and some pods of dolphin, hopefully the skippies also aren’t too far away.


  • 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

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,
