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

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

  • 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
