Plenty of good weather and fishing trips

Plenty of good weather and fishing trips away last week The fishing continues to be okay, but challenging enough that the more experienced fishers definitely have an advantage.

Generally the mornings have been more productive, with things tending to taper off in the afternoon.

Still not a lot of snapper showing up, although the ones we’ve caught have been good sized pannies, the tarakihi have been more consistent.

We did a bit of trolling  Saturday, picked up some good skippies and a few kahawai as well around the Astrolabe, no kingies apart from  1undersize though.

Three’s been a few gamefish hooked and landed though, so a reasonable start to  the season.

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
