For those anglers wanting to get amongst some serious fishing through the winter month Coromandel Fishing Charters are offering trips out into the Hauraki Gulf so it’s time to get together with a few mates and book your trip.
All though there is a noticeable decrease in the numbers of kingfish in the winter months it is mainly the small to medium schools of pest rat kingfish.
On the positive side it leaves kingfish in much smaller schools of perhaps 2-3 fish but the fish that remain are generally over 15kg and there are more large trophy kingfish than at any other stage of the year with good populations of baitfish and snapper right throughout winter.
There’s no reason for the majority of kingfish to migrate to warmer water especially the larger fish with more body mass that are better suited to deal with colder water temperatures, with trophy kingfish available 20-30kg models are not uncommon.
It’s a great time to target a trophy fish of a lifetime.
Salty Towers Bait and Tackle Shop on Tiki Road sell fresh Coromandel mussels.
You can guarantee that when you call into see Hank he will ask you where you’re going and offer some free advice on where to go to catch a feed and how to use the bait. Some places fish well in the morning or afternoon than others but he wants the fishos to get their share of the abundance of Hauraki Gulf snapper. It’s good for Coromandel and good for the fishos.
Salty Towers offer a fish filleting service and for those who enjoy smoked fish this can be done and the bounty couriered when done or you can pick it up the next day, along with any bait and tackle supplies.
Coromandel Fishing Charters are taking bookings for small and medium sized groups to fill up each charter so if you have a couple of mates but are a few short of a boat load don’t worry just give Tom and call and he’ll help you out.
Coromandel Fishing Charters offer more than a fishing experience as there is a lot more to the Hauraki Gulf than people imagine.
