Hapuku trip went well, topped with a 20kg+ kingie

Another 1 day week thanks to a sloppy N.E.  on Saturday, but it settled nicely through Sunday and our public day Hapuku trip went well.

We picked up some skippies on the way out, so plenty of fresh bait. The drifts went well, with bluenose up to 10kg being caught, and one drift producing  bluenose, gemfish, a couple of bass and a big kingfish. It went 22kg on our suspect scales, pretty sure it was a bit heavier than that, but a nice bonus fish nonetheless.

We have caught a few in the deep water, but that was the first for quite a while.  It had several  alfonsino in it, which we also haven’t seen in a while, so hopefully the predominant N.E. we’ve had continue to bring the fish in closer.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    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

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
