Nice snapper inside Motiti
17 February 2015
0 0

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.

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul
