A  bit nastier weather last week forced us to can our Thursday trip, but it came right in time toget a 24hour trip on Friday /Saturday.

A good trip it too, with a total of 7 kingfish caught, between 10 and 20 kg. The bottom fishing was also productive with a good mix of species, snapper, golden snapper tarakihi, maomao, and a few porae. A couple of barracuda and a mako weren’t quite so welcome but kept the interest up.

We were  keen to get the Sunday in as well, but torrential rain at the Marina  before we left and a rain radar forecast showing rain all day persuaded me to pull the pin.

That bit us, it stopped raining about 8.30 and was lovely and calm all day.

When the Metservice get it wrong, there’s no half measures…….

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul
