Some near limit catches of tarakihi
11 February 2015

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.

  • 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
