The week started well, with an excellent, settled day when we picked up our kayakers and trampers from Mayor.

Our midweek trip on Thursday was a good one too. Two or three hours of excellent fishing, and by the time the current had picked up enough to put the fish off, everyone had plenty.

We made a brief stop on the way in, but it was a non event so we got in early enough to miss most of the traffic.

The weekend was looking a bit doubtful, and so it proved, with  enough S.Easterly to make it a no go for both days.

The signs are looking better though, with more schools of fish around, we also saw some dolphins, the first for a while, so here’s hoping the Metservices prediction of a long hot summer aren’t just hot air.


  • Thanks Brett for taking us out yesterday, most had a great day especially Peter who caught the big king fish.

  • Hi Daphne ,

    Please thank Brett for a great trip the other day

    We didn’t get on to the Kingi’s on this occasion but we do appreciate the conditions were against us and we know Brett did everything possible . Still, everyone got plenty of fillets to take home and we thoroughly enjoyed the day

    You will see us again and we will recommend you
