An overnighter to Mayor
21 August 2018
0 0

We got Monday in to start the week with good conditions and slightly slower fishing. Not sure why, they are a bit touchier at this time of year, done spawning and just chilling out a bit, I guess. Still, we had some dolphins around and it’s looking more like spring.

An overnighter to Mayor got off to a good start with a good haul of snapper on the way out. An early start saw the tarakihi going hard up until we went looking for some deeper species. We got a reasonable bluenose first drop, then the wind picked up and the fish stopped biting. Picked up a gemfish but that was that.

Sunday we got Saturday’s  weather, a beautiful calm day and good fishing around Astrolabe, with a lot of nice sized snapper and tarakihi, so  a good week overall.

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    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)
