Productive Day Fishing at Town Pt
15 October 2013
0 0

Yet again the windy weather was quite disruptive to our fishing schedule.

However we got a midweek trip in, and had a productive day at Town Pt, Maketu. Pretty well all tarakihi at present, not many snapper and any caught have been well undersize.

We moved our Saturday trip to Sunday when our overnight trippers decided that the forecast didn't suit them.

Unfortunate for them as we had another good day at Town Pt. The forecast was SW 25kn and easing, so quite ok. Coming off the land, SW and Westerlies only become an issue when we're a lot further out to sea and the short wind chop can be quite uncomfortable.

    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,

    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
