Picked up some good tarakihi to save the day

We got a midweek trip in around he Astrolabe, good conditions with no wind and a fluctuating current which meant a lot of reanchoring as we were swung off the marks all day. The fish were biting  though, and we even picked up 2 good kingys.

Saturday was similar, but the fishing was quite a bit harder everywhere. Frustrating when expectations are high.

It was a lot better than our overnighter though. One of the toughest we’ve had around Mayor. Hardly any reef fish, and the same with the Hapuku drifts.

We had taken the group out previously and had an excellent trip, cold comfort though.

A last gasp stop  at the Pinns paid off, thankfully, and we picked up some good tarakihi to save the day.

    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.
