Working in the deeper water

We’ve been working in the deeper water after trying the closer areas with limited success. Normally it’s where  the fish are at this time of year, but we’ve been hearing that it’s a late season.

The amount of barracuda we’ve been catching backs this up, normally they’re worst well before Christmas. Still, better them and good  tarakihi and trevally, [not much snapper yet], than not much of anything.

The N.  & N.E seem to be helping though, we caught some skipjack and albacore tuna last Thursday, first of the season, and dropped quite a few, so hopefully they’re around for a while now.

It was snotty enough that we lost the weekend, but it’s certainly looking better overall.

    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

  • 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.
