Some near limit catches of tarakihi
11 February 2015
0 0

We had a quieter week, partly due to a couple of poisoned fingers. That might teach me to put some antiseptic on when these things happen.

We got the weekend in though, after the very strong westerlies had eased. They did generate a lot of current however, which meant a lot of reanchoring, but we did surprisingly well, with some near limit catches of tarakihi.

Paul, decky for the day, also got a nice snapper and a good kingie[which he shared with the crew].

The sign was better than it has been for a while, and the tarakihi were definitely more bitey.

I  had great expectations for Sunday, but it was  a lot harder, the current was more unpredictable, and we were swinging off the marks all day.

Frustrating, as the day was beautiful.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    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,
