Purchased a fishing voucher off Bucko over a year ago for my dads b'day but due to my mum breaking her hip just couldnt get my dad up to Paihia to use it. It had actually expired but Bucko came thru and still honoured it which was good. Pretty rubbish day with fairly lumpy conditions so our spots to fish were limited.
While we didnt catch alot we certainly got to solve all of the worlds problems with Bucko, trust me....lol! Was still good to get out and im sure if you fish the Bay towards the end of the year when the snapper spawn and also with Buckos knowledge you'd easily nail it.
Check out Buckos Facebook page......he can back it up. Also most of the reviews on here are positive except for Grumpys who obviously had a way bigger ego than Bucko!..... lol!
