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,

    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

    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.
