October continues to have excellent weather and the fishing’s been  good too.

We’ve continued working around Motiti, with the fish anywhere between 50 and 80m. Two good days midweek with mainly tarakihi coming up.

Saturday had too much SE wind but it was calm and settled by Sunday, which fished well initially, then slowed up, so we went to my never fail spot, where, naturally, we barely caught a fish. We then came back to a bit of foul we’d run over with some sign on it and ended up with a heap of tarakihi, red snapper, 2 legal kingies and  a 6/7kg snapper, which was caught by a 10 year old.

So, pretty good and reconfirming that inconsistency is the only constant with fishing.

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.
