Fishing in Fiordaland

Filed under: Fishing Diary — Tags: , , , , , — Henare @ 2:45 pm

Gordy Watson and myself took a crew of mates into Preservation Inlet, the most southern fiord where we met a charter boat. The Jewel skippered by Rob Swale and his crew were on hand to bait hooks clean the catch and prepare the catch for the pot.

Flying down from Queenstown was a experience on it’s own and cruising around the sound was breath taking to say the least.

If you and your friends are looking for something out of the box give us a shout because that is what we do, we like to take you to places where the only people you will see are who you choose. The rest will be some of NZ’s most pristine landscape.

You will get to have a pretty good feed along the way as well as fresh as it comes out of the cold pure waters of southern New Zealand.

Fying down over what we consider to be one of the most pristine places on the planet, our backyard.

Ross and Lex from Brisbane at the letter box to where??

Kisby Lodge, this place and area is rich in New Zealands early history. From the gold mining to fishing, sealing, hunting, and stories and locations that will tell the tales of the early Maori explorers to the area.

Landing on the barge and meeting our boat, unreal!!

Myself and Gordy, these machines are the closest thing i know to time travel. The only way in to this place is by water or air unless you have 3-5 days to spend hiking in and out.

Our boat for the day, ready to go for a cruise

Lets go.

Crayfish for lunch, yum yum

Ross and Graham tucking into some fresh Terakihi. Straight fromth cold southern ocean.

Garlic butter and cray tails, anybody for lunch.

Forget about the green stuff boys.

About to get aboard the helicopetr and head back to Queenstown.

Flying home
