Information for total beginners
There are various charters for fishermen, join a group of strangers, this is ok and you will learn something but if you are part of a large group you will probably not receive much personal help and ask how many others you will be sharing with, these charters are better if you know whats what.
also you may not have too much say in where and what you do. The bigger boat has more facilities.
Tackle to Bring
If you have your own tackle then you should bring a
24kg set with 50lb+ nylon or braid, we use 80lb braid on our hire tackle braid is best when groper fishing or you wont feel the bite
A 10kg set with lighter line.
Hooks, bring rigs with either15/0 - 16/0 circle or 14/0 powerbaiter/easibaiter hooks tied to heavy mono approx 1.8mm dia, some lumo tubing is good.
For inshore fishing we usually use strong 1/0 or 2/0 flasher rigs or bare hooks but a variety is good.
Sinkers, 30oz for groper plus say 24oz if the weather is calmer. For inshore or deeper water tarakihi a selection of 4oz - 12oz is recommended
If snapper fishing in the summer 5/0 flasher rigs or just hooks are good plus a running rig of a medium sized ball sinker and 1m long trace of 60lb with a couple of 6/0 sharp recurve hooks.
Getting a group together can often be easy but if it proves difficult send me an email with your contact details and when you can be available and I will be able to get you in on a trip in the near future. See the fishing page for prices.
Wellington fishing Reel repairs
I am always maintaining our reels so know all the ins and outs if you have a reel that doesnt work or is sticking I can fix it up just bring it to us it wont take long
We have gift vouchers for a place on a fishing charter, details of our fishing trips are within.
For a unique and probably much appreciated Christmas or birthday present.
The prices are $600,or $700 for a group of up to 5 all you have to do is email your request and post a cheque, I can email them or post, saves all that running around the shops.
A popular request is for several, a wife will ring around a couple of freinds who all buy them for their partners.
Merry Christmas you are going on a trip with your mates!
Vouchers are valid for 6 months then they expire so it is a good idea to be on our mailing list, trips to join in are advertised there and on this website. Within the 6 months there will be opportunities for you to come through our email messages if it is not convenient or you have illness or work commitments or cannot get away midweek there is still no refund or time extension.
