Supermoon having quite an effect on the tides and currents

Last week was an interesting  one, with the supermoon having quite an effect on the tides and currents.

We worked around Motiti early in the week and while the Tuesday was hard we still had reasonable results but the Thursday was diabolical, outside Motiti was quite unfishable, with swell and current completely opposite each other and the lines were running forward  at a 45*angle.

It was more settled inside the island but very little fish,  some snapper, tarakihi and more blue cod than usual.

Saturday we headed in the opposite direction, and had a good morning around  the Pinns, quietening off after lunch.

Sunday we went there again, but slow and hard fishing so out  to Mayor which was a bit better, with red snapper the main catch.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

    Once again  Brett thank you and   son Ben for a trip that we will talk about for a long time

    This is from the… BPT pig  hunting  Whanau

    Cheers

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
