March is my favourite month to fish of the year. Anythings a possibilty, the weathers often at its best and the snapper, kingfish, hapuku and many other species are In peak condition and hungry.
Dont forget our annual shore/boat fishing comp is on this June and is a measure/photo comp so you dont have to weighin - you can release or eat your catch
I'm primarily chartering on the west coast out from Mana Marina at present
There are three types of trips we commonly book.
Four hour trips targeting snapper, kingfish, trevally, gurnard, bluecod and tarakihi in sheltered water. $120pp or $1400 for the boat ($20pp tackle hire)
Six hour trips which can go a bit further and generally have more consistent fishing. We can also have a shot at some deepwater fishing if you want. $150pp or $1800 for the boat ($30pp tackle hire)
Nine hour full day trips are a mixture of deepwater fishing (hapuku) and inshore fishing. $190pp or $2300 for the boat ($40pp tackle hire)
What's included in a trip
We provide bait, expert help, tea, coffee, something on the bbq (share cost trips) and filleting of all fish caught.
Fishing gear and meals can be provided for an extra cost
4hr tackle hire $20pp, 6hr tackle hire $30pp, 9hr tackle hire $40pp

At the moment there are plenty of hapuku around in the deep, kingfish and snapper inshore and most other species mixed in for good measure. The albacore are running past the 100mtr mark and at this time of the year, anything can happen
On a 6hr trip we can go south to Makara or north to Hunters bank and sometimes out wide for hapuku. its generally an inshore fishing trip but we are happay to go deep if everyone on boards keen.
Our 4hr trips are mainly around Mana island and Pukerua bay. There's good numbers of snapper and kingfish around with plenty of kahawai, mixed in with cod, teris, gurnard and trevally
