Still working the deeper water

We got a few days in a row in last week, the forecasts were pretty accurate which was nice, and the weather was too.

We’re still working the deeper water, although there’s been quite good snapper fishing off the beaches apparently.

It’s been good in the 80+m though, a good mix of snapper, tarakihi and trevally with the odd good kingy.

We had a good overnighter Thursday/Friday. The snapper went hard in the evening and the tarakihi were good around Mayor the next day, even though there was quite a lot of current. Not as much as around Motiti though, where it was just about unfishable.

It can be weird though, we’ve had days where it’s an Easterly current  at the Pinns, and a few miles in it’s straight West. Certainly keeps you guessing ..

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    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
