Great Autumn Weather and Fishing!

The weather’s been great, as has the fishing. Pity that the enquiries are slowing down a bit, as this has been the settled weather we’ve been waiting for a few years now.

The deeper water and Mayor continue to be where we’re picking up the fish, tarakihi from the reefs, and a selection, including 3 legal kingfish, 1 of 15kg by Des the decky, while bottom fishing at Mayor.

We also got one just slightly smaller drift fishing on Sunday, in addition to a lot of big gemfish, and smallish, but welcome, bass and hapuku.

The water temperature was 25.9* on Sunday, through Jan./Feb. it never got over 20.4*, no surprise we’re still picking up a few tuna. Quite likely the reason for the improved drift fishing in the last couple of years also.

After a lot of winters of cold southerlies and then the years of snotty lows coming across the Tasman, maybe-fingers crossed- we might finally see longer periods of settled weather interspersed with the odd good blow. We’re about due a change of pattern.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

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!!
