It’s always good to see the new month start off with good weather, and so far July’s been mint

We got an overnighter away  with the Romai FC, 3rd time lucky and had a good evening fish for an hour or two.

A lot of nice snapper, up to 3  kg , and a few tarakihi when the snapper slowed  down. A good night’s sleep at Mayor and bright and early back into it.

There was enough S.E. current to make getting on the mark tricky at first, but once positioned we had good steady fishing.  A  lot more tarakihi, with a good mix of snapper, pink maomao,  red snapper, and the odd porae and trevally as well.

We had a group  decision to do a few Hapuku drifts, but the  current was too severe in the deeper water and we got skunked except for a sea perch and a lonely tarakihi.

Sunday was a perfect day, weather and fishingwise , so we ended up home a bit early. A few near misses with  just undersize kingfish,but nobody was  too concerned, the tarakihi eased the pain.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

  • 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
