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 OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

    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,
