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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi,
    Just to say thank you Brett and Des for making our fishing trip last Sunday so enjoyable. You were both so helpful.We all had a great day and have been eating fish all week!

    Thanks again
    Jacquie and Cornelia

  • 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 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
