Gary started organising a chartered fishing trip out of Kaikoura a while back and the crew has been looking forward to it ever since.
It was also a great excuse for Gary and Janette joined by some friends to pack up the motorhome and stay in Kaikoura for an extended weekend
Nevertheless, spirits were high, and the rolling swell claimed a few victims early in the morning. The burley seemed to help our cause and we started pulling in Perch and Cod instantly.

After filling up bins with Perch and Blue Cod, the skipper navigated the vessel back towards South Bay picking up crayfish pots along the way.
Everyone went home with a good couple of feeds of fish and the crayfish was a bonus to the trip. If you are looking for a professional, experienced, and friendly charter in Kaikoura I am certain everyone on the boat would agree and recommend the Seamist crew.
