Saturdays northerly a bit too strong for us

Just the one day last week, with Saturday’s northerly a bit too strong for us to get out.

The Thursday was a good one though, with a good mix of fish, although we’ve been seeing a few more snapper, with the tarakihi tending to be a bit fussier now that most of the females have spawned now.

We should be starting to see them showing up in the shallower water from now on. A couple of years ago it was full on but  last year was a different  story, less action right through the season in close. The deeper water and Mayor were consistently good though and as long as we’re picking them up from somewhere, that’s the main thing.


  • Thanks Brett for taking us out yesterday, most had a great day especially Peter who caught the big king fish.

  • Thanks for a fabulous day on the water. Just ate some great fish and washed it down with nz Pinot.

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
