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

  • 5.1.2010

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards
