The best snapper fishing in a few years
18 May 2017

The bookings are slowing as the days get shorter, which is a pity, because the fishing is still going very well. We’ve had the best snapper fishing in a few years, with a lot of good sized fish caught in most areas. Disappointing for the exspurts who’re busy saying what crisis the species is in. Strange how it’s only snapper that are mentioned. Still, they are almost the only fish in the ocean.

Strange too, that all the groups use the same data; the commercial fishermen are the only ones who file catch  returns, so pro or anti, it all comes from the same source. Just depends on your point of view.

Fishing, like everything else, is cyclic and the ocean currents have the biggest effect, but how often are they mentioned as a factor from season to season?

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    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
