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

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards
