A lot of snapper caught

We had to cancel last Sunday’s trip due to bad weather but managed to get Monday in with most of the people booked, so that was a bonus. Not a bad day either and good fishing with a lot of snapper caught. Wednesday was similar conditions but mostly tarakihi with a couple of snapper.
 
The bigger tides we get in winter around the new moon seem to have more influence on the fishing, often more inconsistent, bigger currents, generally a bit harder. Snapper are less affected by current, often it’s what brings them to the boat, conversely, it’s why they can be so fickle. There one minute, bit of a wind or tide shift, gone the next.
 
We got Saturday in, ok steady fishing, tarakihi and pink maomao mainly, but the N/N.E front coming through killed the next few days.

 

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 6.12.2012

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen
