Settled weekend and good fishing to go with it

Nice to see another settled weekend and good fishing to go with it.

We went around the Pinns Saturday morning and had quite good fishing, quite a few pink maomao as well as tarakihi , red snapper and a few snapper, although they’re getting more scarce.

The wind picked up a little, so we tried in a bit closer, and did better than expected on the tarakihi, with quite a lot of undersize snapper also, a bit of a surprise.

A quick turnaround and back to Mayor, where the evening fishing was steady, the usual mix, plus a couple of good kingies.

Sunday’s drift fishing was slow, good sign, but just a few gemfish and a couple of bluenose. Frustrating, but all part of the game.

  • 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
