Overnighters, slow Hapuka fishing, but still managing nice bottom fish
11 June 2014
0 0

Last week consisted of 2 overnighters on the weekend with the first starting well with some good evening fishing around Mayor. Some good sized porae, as well as a lot of snapper, and a good smattering of tarakihi and trevally meant we were off to a good start, but the current picked up from the S.E. overnight, making the ‘puku fishing a non event. A light N.W. meant we were  barely moving through the water. Wind over current always makes for hard fishing, and this was no exception.

After some fruitless[fishless] drifts we went back to bottom fishing,  a bit more enjoyable and productive.

Trying to repeat Friday nights effort also initially proved frustrating, once again too much current. A shift to the other side of the island paid off though, with more good bottom fishing. Sunday was groundhog day, once again strong wind over current so only one gemfish. Back to bottom fishing and we finished off the day with some more nice snapper after a lot of looking.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    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.

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis

They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!
