More snapper than tarakihi
15 April 2014
0 0

We’ve been targeting more snapper than tarakihi lately, weather and conditions have meant that the deeper reefs have not  been as accessible.

Around the Okaparus has been quite consistently good, although Sunday’s Easterly made things a bit bouncy when we headed outside Motiti. We even managed a few tarakihi, which are abundant around  Mayor and the deeper water, but very hard to find under 50m, the Middle Ground being particularly hard.

We had junior anglers from the Te Puke Citizens Club on Saturday, so stayed shallow, working down the coast to Papamoa East. It wasn’t  too bad in close, but a lot  slower when we angled out towards the Knoll and  tried some of the spots a little deeper. Still, a good day for all.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thanks for a fabulous day on the water. Just ate some great fish and washed it down with nz Pinot.

    Ross the Aussie

  • 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
