Here is another one of our fun social trips organised for friends and clients of the Jetskifishing Store. This adventure was back to the region of Port Charles, to a piece of paradise located in the native New Zealand bush of the Coromandel. These trips see Jetskifisho’s travelling throughout the North Island to meet up with other like minded fisho’s keen on enjoying the true lifestyle of our sport. One of the big attractions which got me started with Jetskifishing six years ago, is the skis are easy towing and launching, allowing you increased fishing opportunities at remote spots in New Zealand.
We had a group of twenty five booked and most timed to join our Jetskifishing convoy from as far away as New Plymouth. There were a few stops along the way, with this being our last stop at the Colville Cafe before heading to the more rugged part of the Coromandel.
Leaving Colville towards our stay at Port Charles.
Some of the group following.
After a further thirty minutes of gravel and scenic roads, we were not far from our base.
Always a great feeling arriving at Kiwi Retreat, with quality accommodation and meals catered for a Jetskifisherman’s appetite!
The pics tell the story, we had another brilliant trip with plenty of personal bests and a good time had by all.
Jason with a big snapper caught at Great Barrier Island, on the Gulp – Sardine.
We fished for the Kingies as well, but were limited to our disgust, with the commercial gill netter who now completely surrounds the structures we usually target at Curvier. One of the pins fortunately had some real bad boys on it that I was not so well prepared for and will be heading back there another day.
Some of the others in our group managed to get in to some smaller Kings closer to the island, making for a great day all round.
While most of the guys were of fishing the ladies were enjoying the opportunity of holding one of the sponsored Kiwis.
This was another great trip with a few good nights reflecting on our days on the water in some challenging conditions. The lodges are a great place to relax after a big day on the water, not a bad lifestyle we enjoy on these social trips.
There are plenty of pics from the start to finish of our trip uploaded on our Facebook Page. Check out some of the feedback from Jetskifisho’s who attend our social trips.
