Working in the deeper water
12 January 2016

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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    Hi Brett,
     
    I enjoyed my fishing during my last trip to Tauranga. The fishes caught was really delicious...Taratiki. I couldn't wait to eat them, so, I cooked a few fillets at the Bay Palm Motel where I stayed. I brought the rest back to Perth and my family just loved them.
     
    Just a note that you should be aware of so that you can advise all future Australians who fish with you and want to bring the fishes home. The fishes MUST be headless, gilled and gutted. Remember, must not have heads. I decleared my fishes and the first questions asked was whether I removed the head (which I did) and since my fishes were also gutted and gilled, I could bring in ALL(including the fillets).
     
    Best wishes for the season and happy fishing.

    Regards,
