Our excellent summer continues!

Our excellent summer continues, with the game fishing in particular, being exceptional. There’d have to be  more marlin, black, blue and striped caught than in the last 10 years. Yellowfin tuna also,  have made a comeback and it will be interesting to see what the next few years bring.

The bottom fishing has continued to be good, inconsistent, but with plenty of fish there when they feel hungry.

We had a good little hit of snapper in one spot last week, looks like they’re close to showing up in more numbers, while the tarakihi bop along when it suits them.

Mayor’s still good, we even saw a freejumping  mahimahi on Saturday while hapuku fishing. Great conditions and yet again persistence is the thing, often just one or two drifts doing the business. Quite a good selection though, bluenose , gemfish, hapuku and a bass caught.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
