Mayor evening fish produces some nice snapper up to 6kg

It took a few days for the swell to settle  after the cyclone had slid down the east coast, but we got out on Friday and found that the snapper had moved in.

We had good catches around the western side of Motiti, nice sized fish too, with a few trevally, kahawai and tarakihi as well.

An evening fish on the way  to Mayor  also provided some nice snapper up to 6kg, until sundown, no moon meant nothing much after dark.

The next day around Mayor was also good, steady fishing with snapper and tarakihi despite a lot of current running.

Sunday was beautiful, no current, perfect conditions, but a slower day everywhere on the snapper, and we couldn’t find tarakihi at all.

Normally the deeper water is consistent now but not at the moment . Fickle fish.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

    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,
