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

  • 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

  • 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
