Marlin freejumping beside the boat

Ahhh, April showers. Gentle rain….yeah, right.

Friday was ok for an overnighter, though.  There was SE predicted, but not too much and it was late coming anyway, so we had a reasonable evening fish with  some nice snapper and trevally also.

Saturday  we stayed on the Western side of Mayor, had quite a good morning on tarakihi and trevally but not the snapper we’d normally get at this time of year.

We also had a marlin freejumping beside the boat and a couple of little makos stealing the odd fish, so an entertaining morning and the Eastern side was ok too.

Sunday was still a bit of SE slop, but well fishable and more good fishing. We even picked up a couple of skippies on the way home.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    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, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul
