Back to the 1 day week again. We got Friday in, the forecast was iffy enough for us to head towards the Penguin shoals  rather than any further out. We had a couple of stops on the way, and got fish- mainly tarakihi and snapper, immediately at both of them, both petered out quite quickly though.

The Penguins was similar, initially good, then move and get  some more, which worked for a while.

After a couple of fishless stops we went back in to Pudney, which also went well at first, with red snapper, pink maomao snapper and even a sucker Hapuku.

So a damp but quite good day overall.

The weekend though, was a non event, too much rain and wind on both days unfortunately.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

    Once again  Brett thank you and   son Ben for a trip that we will talk about for a long time

    This is from the… BPT pig  hunting  Whanau

    Cheers

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron

    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.
