Another week of mainly good fishing

Another  week of mainly good fishing.

We’re still  working the area outside Motiti for the bottom fishing as it’s been the most consistent.  Thursday we only shifted twice all day, with mainly tarakihi ticking  along  all day.  Friday we went back to the same  spots and had a lot slower day. Tried other , shallower areas but no go anywhere.

Our overnighter saw a few snapper caught around Mayor that evening with good tarakihi fishing, minus a few to the tax collector[a  2.5m Mako].

We also got 6 albacore  and had a marlin jumping by the boat so a  double bonus. The drift fishing was slow, just a few bluenose.

Sat/Sun was similar,  with a nice hapuku, bass and small gemfish  caught before the N.E. slop got the better of some of the crew and we headed home.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    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)

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
