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!

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

    Tanya
