The weather has certainly settled in the last week or so and we got a few trips in last week.

We did the Middle ground and around Motiti on Thursday as the last trip hadn’t been too bad, but lightning sure didn’t strike twice, slow and hard everywhere.

Saturday we headed deep, out towards the Pinns, and had a really good day, great conditions and excellent fishing, so naturally we headed back out there on Sunday. Very similar conditions and weather, but the fishing had slowed down heaps. Still reasonable but a lot slower. From talking to a couple of other boats, it did sound similar in other areas so maybe they slept in with  daylight saving starting.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi Daphne ,

    Please thank Brett for a great trip the other day

    We didn’t get on to the Kingi’s on this occasion but we do appreciate the conditions were against us and we know Brett did everything possible . Still, everyone got plenty of fillets to take home and we thoroughly enjoyed the day

    You will see us again and we will recommend you

    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,
