The game fishing continues to be a standout season

We’ve been bopping around trying to find where the tarakihi  have gone since the cyclone slid past a couple of weeks ago.

The snapper have been good in most places we’ve tried, but tarakihi  not so much.

We went out  to the Pinns on Tuesday , mainly snapper again, then came back to shallower water  and did pick up some  tarakihi there.

A day trip around Motiti on Saturday was more of the same.

An evening fish on the way to Mayor saw us have a good run on the snapper until after dark, and on Sunday we finally got onto tarakihi, good size and condition, with quite a few getting close to spawning. A 3m odd Mako, enjoyed a few of them too, really good to see, a beautiful animal.

The game fishing continues to be a standout season, with more tagging and landing of mainly  striped marlin and mahimahi over the weekend.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
