The weather has been the hardest thing about the fishing at the moment.

We were out one day last week, but the South Easterlies have been making it tough for us to get out. Its been difficult for the Metservice to predict, as there has been so much weather on the map.

We have been doing most of our fishing around the Motiti and Middle Ground area, catching a good range of fish. The best bite has been in the afternoon, through the high tide, with both snapper, and plenty of small kingfish coming on the bite. There have been some decent sized ones amongst them, with a few of our fishers being reefed by some nice ones. The water has still been warm, with plenty of school fish, and the odd shark cruising around with them. Looking forward to what is hopefully a nice calm weekend, the deeper spots around Motiti have produced well, so would be nice work our way out from the shallower waters to the deep, to find out whether the fish have moved, and to check whether the Tarakihi are showing up in numbers..

 

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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
