We tried a few variations on the normal routine last week, which yielded some interesting results.

Went to the Pinns midweek and had a good day with a good mixture of snapper and tarakihi through the day.

We then headed back out on an evening trip, trying inside Karewa after a pretty grim effort around the Middle Ground the week before.

It didn’t start well  with only a few kahawai, but checking an old mark paid off, with a good lot of snapper until about 9.30.

Next day was a kids fishing trip, so we stayed close off Omanu to Papamoa and did well on the snapper there, not fast but steady all day, making everyone happy.

Good enough I tried it again on Sunday. Lightning didn’t strike twice though, some came up, slower than Saturday,  so we worked our way to outside Motiti, and most did ok, mainly snapper, with a few tarakihi and trevally and one nice kingy  was a bonus.

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

    Brett & the Manutere, well i must say that over the last 8 years or more i have been out on day & overnight trips plus the TGA game fishing one base & charter tournaments  with Brett, you would be hard pushed to find a better skipper who will do his upmost to put you on the fish !!! & i mean go the extra mile !! literally, always good for a yarn, (fishing, politics, rugby etc etc,) & not forgetting the overnight trips tradditional continental breakfast, beans, eggs, bacon, toast, & a wicked coffee !

    The Manutere is a solid fishing platform of which i have spent many enjoyable hours aboard, and hope to spend many more !!!!

    Cheers Brett, till next time ! (soon)
