Guys from Vanuatu out celebrating their Independence Day

Nothing much happening through the week, but the weekend was good. Well the fishing was good, but the weather on Saturday was a lot worse than the forecast.

Quite nice initially, but the SW that was supposed to  ease steadily picked up to 30 odd knots forcing us in to the shallower water, which  performed quite well, with snapper and tarakihi mainly.

One bonus was we had a good escort of dolphins on the way out, and a whale spouted several times close by, not that common a sight and always to see.

Sunday the forecast was on the money, a beautiful day, good fishing and an excellent group of guys from Vanuatu out celebrating their Independence Day.

More than made up for the sloppy Saturday

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.9.2009

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
