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

    Hi,
    Just to say thank you Brett and Des for making our fishing trip last Sunday so enjoyable. You were both so helpful.We all had a great day and have been eating fish all week!

    Thanks again
    Jacquie and Cornelia

  • 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 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.
