Sounds Connection. The Sounds Connection is a long-standing Picton company that runs a host of land- and water-based tours, including regular half-day fishing trips and full-day trips by request/charter. All fishing trips leave from Picton. They can pick you up from accommodation in the Sounds for a small fee. They supply all the necessary gear— it's up to you to get the fish! Then they'll fillet it for you and prepare it for you to eat.
