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 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
