OK fishing on both the East and West sides of Mayor
26 October 2016

We got a Monday trip away, which started well, with some nice tarakihi caught at the 10 mile , on our way to the Pinns. Unfortunately the forecast was woeful, and our 10/15 knot Westerly turned into about 30 from the SW, so we ended up working back through the Karewa spots, which produced next to nothing.

A  ½  day around Brewis went well and we got to the Pinns on Friday. Also good fishing.

Saturday/Sunday’s overnighter was another toughy, had short periods of ok fishing on both the East and West sides of Mayor but then faded away. Possibly due to some pretty big tides after the full moon, it sounded like it was hard everywhere, but looking for reasons is a big call. And fish don’t do interviews.

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
