GETTING YOU TO THE BIG FISH……FASTER

Our purpose built Extreme vessels are powered by Honda for quietness, fuel economy, reliability and performance. We know you would prefer to be fishing rather than travelling, so we use our speed to get you to the action and our Furuno sounders to track down the fish.

USE THE BEST GEAR

Wave Dancer use Catch Fishing tackle because it’s tough, innovative, and amazing at catching fish. You’ll be using lures like the Freestyle Kabura, Betabug, Squid Wings, Long John Slider, The Boss to name a few, and experiencing the Catch Pro Series rods and reels.

WIN A TRIP ON WAVE DANCER…EVERY WEEK.

Every week one lucky person will win a trip on Wave Dancer. You could be catching the snapper of a lifetime, or experiencing the thrill of a workup as hundreds of gannets dive bomb into a school of frenzied baitfish that are fleeing from a pod of hungry dolphins.

How much for a trip please.

Nice one

A good size snapper

Chris Rayes when should we go this year?

Would be nice if that fish was still alive and the fisherman put it back in the sea. Those are our breeding stock. We need them to keep our fish supplies growing. At the end of the day it is nicer eating if you get smaller fish. Pan sized is the way to go.

Where's the Fish. Micro jigs and lots of fish on light tackle.

Catch Fishing
WTF - 4 May 2017

You can't deny the thrill of hooking up on different species on little micro jigs!

Micro jigs on light tackle are a ton of fun! Use micro jigs on lighter sensitive rods in the shallows just like a softbait.

Eye popping seemingly never-ending runs from good sized kingfish have been more common than not lately. The hoodlums of the sea are hounding those mackerel, and there are plenty of mackerel north of Tiritiri Matangi at the moment. Also keen on these tasty mackerel are big kahawai, which attract the kingfish as well. Both the kingfish and kahawai have been hitting the 20gm micro jigs wafting down through the water column. Whether you prefer to drift fish or if the wind doesn’t allow a slow enough drift for micro jigs to reach the sea floor, throw down the anchor. And while your stationary, drop your Kabura straight down. One wind up off the sea floor, lighten the drag off and let Rod Holder hook the fish, it’s been very productive!

The kahawai have also been feeding right into near zero depth of water right along the Whangaparaoa peninsula for the past several days. Great fun to target in smaller boats, kayaks and land based.

The open areas of northern Waiheke have seen the welcome sights of some Autumn workups where all predators are after the pilchard schools, with gannets and the odd whale filling up on these fish delicacies.

Skipjack are definitely still around but with the fast dropping temperatures they will depart soon.

Right in along the North West of Rangitoto and Rakino has seen baitschools too. Pilchards or anchovies no doubt, and where there are baitfish, there are bigger predators.

Out further in 50m the snapper have been consistent in their bite. Most are not large but more so the preferred eating sizes i.e. pannies of 30-40cm in good numbers. Drifting or at anchor – the sounder signs are good.

Enjoy.

Bit of a feeding frenzy in shallows this morning with a heap of bait hiding under the boat,
Unfortunately we broke the Fly rod while targeting Kingfish so that put an end to the day real quick.
