Waitangi Day

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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    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
