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.

  • 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)
