August 2008 

Welcome to an update of happenings onboard Star Trek.
Well what a winter it has been. Unfortunately it has meant a number of cancelled trips over the last month. Hopefully we are through the worst of it and we can look forward to some great weather and fishing with Spring just around the corner.
We are pleased to say that the new website is now up and running. It has a fresh new modern look. We will be updating it regularly with monthly ‘skippers reports’ and other news. It also has a new and improved online booking and enquiry form.

The days we have been able to get out have been successful with plenty of nice size fish being brought in. Bryce had a great 2 day trip out with a couple of the editors from New Zealand Fishing News recently. It was all soft baits and jigging with very productive results. Some good size snapper and kingfish were caught.
An event worth mentioning is the annual Scallop Festival at Whitianga this coming weekend. If you are attending this popular event, you may want to keep an eye out for our skipper ‘Big Dave’.
Hope to see you ‘on board’ again soon
