We've stuck with the offshore fishing

Another few days of reef fishing trips, with the usual mix of results.

We’ve stuck with the offshore fishing, as in closer hasn’t improved and at least the better days are good out further.

The Pinns were off on Thursday so it was out to Mayor, where it fired well around Tuhua, nice tarakihi, and some excellent trevally.

Friday at the Pinns was similar, not much sign and conditions were odd. Tuhua was too, weird sign on the sounder, missing our anchor marks, fish off the bite. Some combination of opposing currents perhaps, Friday night and Saturday morning certainly cut up rough too.

Sunday was a different ocean, big schools of dolphin towards Mayor, gannets working amongst them and several other pods reported inside Motiti. A lot more sea life and action generally.

Fishing was ok, and the sign looked better than it has for some time. All in all a positive day and looking good for December.

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 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.
