Waitangi Day
12 February 2018

Well, we had a small improvement from last week with at least getting one day’s fishing in, on Waitangi Day. A nice day too, sunny and calm. Unlike most of the rest of the week.

The fishing in the deeper water, which has been more consistent for a while now, wasn’t so good this trip. We got some nice fish, and the barracuda that were an issue have gone  [for good hopefully], but slow.

We tried in a bit closer for no improvement, then tried a spot around 40m that fired well with a good mix of snapper and tarakihi.

There’s been a bit more snapper showing up around the Okaparus also, so that opens up more options.

The skippies are going hard though, a big improvement on last year when we didn’t see that many al lseason.

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    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.
