Reasonable gemfish and bluenose caught

A couple of beautiful calm days last weekend and quite good fishing as well.

We fished around the Labe on Saturday for mainly tarakihi, with a few quite nice snapper in the mix as well. Had to do a bit of resetting, as the breeze was just enough to swing us around as it varied from SW to NW, causing the odd tangle, but good fishers and the right gear[decent weight sinkers] minimised the issue.

Sunday we did a day Hapuku trip. No Hapuku, but reasonable gemfish and bluenose caught, and a big increase in dolphins, shearwaters and jellyfish all point to the warmer waters starting to move in. Good to see.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    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

  • 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
