Hapuku trips, good days, beautiful conditions and a good selection of fish

We couldn’t have asked for a better start to the new year as far as the weather goes, it’s been great.

The predominating East and Northerly winds have brought in the warmer water and we’re seeing more skippies and quite a few albacore inside the 100metre line.

We did a day Hapuku trip and had a good day, beautiful conditions and a good selection of fish, mainly bluenose with a couple of bass and also 2 big rays bream.

The bottom fishing’s still up and down, the deeper water is more consistent, but the fish are starting to show up more regularly in close. Another area which will improve with the warmer water.

  • 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

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
