Good fishing today
Offshore Fishing Report 23 June 2019
We had an upcountry couple with us on a short charter today, conditions were really nice with a moderate SW wind and seas were nice and flat. The water has got cold now and sits under 20 deg.C and we had a relatively strong reverse current which made bottom fishing a little difficult. On the way out we hook up into a nice Bonnie and shortly after we hooked up and Albatross, once we sorted him out and got him back flying we stopped and did bottoms. I have to say that the squawk of the Albatross sort of sound like the ratchet of a Tyrnos 30. Bottom fishing was really good even in the stronger current and we got some really nice Slinger, Englishman and Copper Bream, every drop was a good fish. We took a troll back along an inshore route and had a double up with 2 big Bonnies which gave a good account for themselves.

Fathers and Sons Fishing.
Offshore Fishing Report 25 June 2019
We had 2 families on the boat for a short morning charter. Water is very cold and under 20deg.C and we had a screaming reverse current. The cold water is a good sign for those awaiting the arrival of the sardines as usually when it drops under 20deg.C it means they are on their way.
We struggled to get our baits down in the screaming current and we only got one drop on the mark and had to continuously reposition after every drop to stay on point. We managed to get about 20 nice bottom fish that we could keep including a few Slinger but mostly Soldiers were feeding, we got a few nice sized ones and many undersize fish which we put back and to make sure they survived we brought them up slowly so they would go back down and not float. We also managed 1 Bonnie on the troll. A frustrating day indeed, especially after so many great trips in the past 6 weeks.
Fishing trips for Fathers and Sons are great for bonding and connecting.

Family Fishing Trip.
Offshore Fishing Report 30 June 2019
We had 3 families on Fat Girl for a short morning charter. Conditions were stunning with light winds, flat seas and a slow current. No Bonnies or Tuna around yet, guess they are hanging around the sardines at the moment. Bottom fishing was great with a lot of fish caught by some very enthusiastic young men. A wide variety of species too, Slinger, Soldiers, Englishmen, Bronze Bream, Stumpy, Black Tail, Sea Barbel and even some Mackerel. We also got a large Toby that puffed up the size of a soccer ball and a very large Lion Fish which was an extremely interesting catch. Loads of fun with fathers and sons having a blast. The sons definitely out fished the dads on this trip.
