We finally got an overnighter in Wednesday/Thursday. A bit wet on the way out, but it had settled quite well by the morning.

The bottom fishing went well, with 4 nice kingies, up to 20+ kg caught , and a good selection of snapper, tarakihi, trevally and the like as well.

We also had a heap of bait fish around the boat during the night, with a lot of juvenile gemfish, up to about 40cm being caught. Not something we’ve seen too often.

The drift fishing was a disappointment though, with only a couple of small gemfish  hooked. The conditions were ok, but the baits were consistently untouched.

The bottom fishing on Sunday was good though,  mainly tarakihi and red snapper, some snapper and  a lot nicer day than Saturday was.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    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.
