April has started well, continuing the good summer that we’ve had.

A couple of good bottom fishing trips midweek, with the tarakihi continuing to go well, combined with the calm seas made for some easy days.

Taking  a tramping club to Mayor for the Easter weekend continued the laid back mode and we even picked up some skippies as well as a good selection around the island.

As usual with Mayor, the currents  have a major effect on where the fish are being caught, with a tide change often seeing an area going from good to nothing happening in short order.

The snapper  around Motiti have slowed since they showed up a fortnight ago, still there, but shorter feeding times. There are plenty of little ones around though, particularly in the under 30m areas.

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

    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

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul
