Nice snapper inside Motiti
17 February 2015

The East and S.E. winds made conditions tough for most of the week. We got Thursday in, tried outside Motiti where we’d been doing ok, but the current was too strong to  contend with in conjunction with a big N.E. swell. A pity, as we got a few even so.

Inside Motiti we got onto some nice snapper, they lasted just long enough to make the day, thankfully, because it was pretty slow after that.

A stag do on Saturday saw another good hit of snapper, a different  spot, but similar result. They bit hard for 30/40 minutes, and that was  it.

A bit of luck there, but I’ll take it.

Sunday the current had eased and the tarakihi were more on the bite, also got a few kingies, 1 legal,  some really big kahawai along with snapper and  red snapper.  And conditions got nicer as  the day progressed. An excellent day.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

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

  • 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

    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.
