It is an exciting time of year for us Jetskifisho’s in NZ, with the weather warming up with all the local Jetskifisho’s starting to use their skis more. For the keener and seasoned Jetskifisho’s we are taking advantage of any opportunity to get out on the water and often head away on social trips. This particular adventure was the Coromandel overnight social experience which I organise, away for three nights in luxury. I often hear from the crew that join us that they learn just as much off the water as they do on it. As a bonus, they get to fish with other guests with a similar skill set, improving each other’s knowledge of the sport. This adventure had over twenty Jetskifisho’s meeting at various locations in the North Island making their way to our destination the Kiwi Retreat.
Our drive from Auckland to our base takes just over three hours.
With some amazing scenery along the way, it sure makes for a great experience and feels like a real holiday doing what we enjoy.
The whole package for each guest includes all meals, shared lodges and facilities to really relax on our stay.
We had four days of weather-challenged fishing and it ranged from sheltered in close missions, to some more adventurous rides to Great Barrier Island and Cuvier Island. Check out some of the great fish with a few of the crew landing personal bests.
The bonus of the Coromandel fishing is the variety of different species which we catch.
The next big event of 2013 is this Sunday, the Sea-Doo King of Jetskifishing in association with JFK’s. If you own a jet-ski, it is time to get it ready for this fun day which also involves the family. There is $7,000 in prizes and an entry gift pack for all those that register. We have a kid’s bouncy castle at the prize giving/weigh-in with a BBQ and CanAm Spyder bike demo rides after 3:00pm.
