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 there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron

    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,
