The Fish Seem to Have Finally Moved in Closer
30 September 2014

Well, the fish seem to have finally moved in closer. We went to Town Pt, and did ok there, checked a few spots in the Middle Ground on the way down and picked up a few at each spot also. So, nice to have a few more options available.

We did an overnighter to Mayor Friday/Sat. and found it a bit slow, got a few fish in the evening and next morning, but had quite a lot of fluctuating currents throughout the trip which made the fishing hard. No shortage of sign, but most of it well off the bottom, which usually equates to harder fishing, and did this time too. Still, good weather and a good crew made up for it.

Interesting to see that in 3 years the Resolvers’ have managed to pick up a whole 50t of debris from the Lab. At that rate it’ll only take  250 years to get the rest. No wonder they won’t reduce the 3.6km exclusion zone [the whole Astrolabe is only 600m across BTW], we might be able to see just what they get up to.

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

  • 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 Daphne ,
