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 ..

  • 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

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
