Captains Log 2015

January 2015 

2015 is off to a great start, lots of dolphins, sharks and whales spotted on our trips.

There has also been some good tuna fishing and large work ups with huge amounts of king fish, this makes for awesome Whangaparaoa fishing charters on DoubleRum.

If its diving you’re after, we have also had luck on our Auckland fishing charters incorporating diving with lots crayfish being caught.


February 2015

Our fishing charters between Anchorite and Horn rock have been spectacular with lots of snapper when we fish on the 55 meter mark. There are no work ups and no bait fish out there, we have just been drifting with berley.

Channel island has been incredible fishing for our Auckland fishing charter boat, with some people using fly fishing methods and poppers. Lots of Kahawai have been caught and some big king fish. We have had skin divers and scuba divers catching cray and spearing king fish.

The weather has been good, and the boat has been going well.


March 2015

The fishing trips in March are just going off. Lots of fish being caught, with our fishing charters at Ancorite rock, little Barrier, Arid Island.

Looking for Hapuka was slow however.

Snapper now are everywhere from the Harbour bridge right out to Channel Island allowing our Auckland fishing charter to come back full.

Channel Island is holding big kingfish and lots of large bronze whalers and blue sharks for our Auckland fishing charters.


April 2015

The Auckland charter fishing trips are very busy, we are departing Gulf Harbour each Friday, Saturday and Sunday. All fishing charter trips are coming back loaded up with Kahawai, Snapper and the occasional Gurnard and John Dory.


May 2015

The fishing charters at this time are just massive. Each fishing trip is coming back to Whangaparaoa fully loaded up. We are catching good sized Gurnard and Trevally and of course snapper. Keep in touch through our facebook page for updates on our Auckland fishing charters. We are looking for more work, don’t be shy the fishing is amazing at this time, a little rain won’t hurt. We are finding the fishing charters are still going well.


June 2015

The fishing is excellent for our charter boat. Hard to beat winter fishing from Gulf Harbour Marina , Whangaparaoa , big Snapper action and Hapuka out wide



July 2015

Winter fishing for DoubleRum fishing charters is here, cold mornings, beautiful days.

Our fishing charter have not caught any big, big fish for a few trips although all have been very enjoyable, and all fishing trips from our charter boat are coming home with good feeds.

Barrier is not fishing so well, around the top of the firth of Thames at Dusk seems to be working. Our fishing charter is using jitter bugs and sliders with squid.

August/September/October 2015

Not so much happening on our Auckland fishing charter boat, lousy weather with cold rain and sleet alongside huge winds.

We did a lot of maintenance on the boat with new seals for windows to stop the leaks, new carpet through out and new injectors for the motors. The maintenance for our fishing charters is all ready for summer.


November 2015

Fine still days. Snapper are in, although no huge fish yet. Most Auckland fishing trips have been coming back with full loads of nice snapper, still lots of sharks around and big packs of barracuda. These charters are perfect for your company Christmas party.
