Kawhia marlin and tuna trips

Recently we have been running some overnight trips targeting snapper, albacore tuna, and marlin. There are plenty of these magnificent fish out there, perhaps the best season for marlin we have seen in many years, with fish in so close we are seeing them when snapper fishing.

Stunning little albies, great to see, and eat too!

These trips have so far been very successful on all fronts, and the bonus is all the fish are hanging out in the same area, so not much travel is required to get a crack at all of the above.

We can take up to a maximum of 6 for these trips. This is the year to be doing it as water conditions are perfect.

If you are keen on a trip that covers it all, give us a call and we can discuss a price depending on your timing and numbers.

The snapper fishing is going insane, and over the past week in 40-50 meters south of Harihari beach, we caught lots of fish around the 8-10 lb mark.  There’s very little effort needed to get a limit at present, so two to three hours and job done!

Cheers

Nato has set Milan the task of catching a big snapper before he is allowed to catch another king fish. Then Nato has a bed time story about a pack of king fish hammering a live bait.
My First Marlin
Big Game
On a recent road trip to the magic far north, leaving out of Houhora, we managed to capture the hookup and battle of first ever marlin for young Flyn Jack (@ Flyn Jack Fishing) . Truly an amazing experience and a magnificent place to fish from, when you are in big game waters within less than an hour from shore. Take a look at the adventure. Big thanks to Hunstman Boats, and Grant Foster on the deck.
Pat Swift Jigging Flies
Fresh water
Since the introduction of jigging for trout, this fun and very fruitful method of fishing has made catching trout in lakes a lot more fun than dragging them in on heavy lead lines.

The boys set out to make a educational “best practice” shark fishing video, after a considerable increase in recreational fishermen targeting Sharks. There has also been an increase in accidental Great White Shark captures by recreational fishermen. After some 10 years targeting Bronze Whaler Sharks the boys have only ever seen one Great White Shark and never hooked one while Shark fishing. What takes place completely blows their minds!

After spending the Xmas holidays catching king fish in the harbour, Milan is super keen to finally land a king fish while Nato films it with his iPhone. The boys see a massive king fish around a marker pole and spend 3 days trying to catch it.
