Persistent fishermen over from Hong Kong
12 September 2016
0 0

After last week’s beautiful conditions, we were looking forward to fishing throughout the week. Unfortunately the weather forecast for Saturday turned a bit sour, but we had some persistent fishermen over from Hong Kong, who couldn’t wait to get out regardless. It was blowing Southerly, so we fished in close for the day.

The fishing around the Middle Ground proved to be quite tough, but there was a lot of current on the bottom which wouldn’t have been helping. The sign was quite high off the bottom from the screen on the sounder. This is generally a pretty good indication the feeding pattern will be a bit sporadic. Not to worry though, the guys still had a great day, which is the main thing.

Sunday would have been the pick of the bunch, but we didn’t manage to get out, fingers crossed for some settled weather this weekend!

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    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,

  • 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
