As much snapper as tarakihi
10 May 2017
0 0

The fishing has been a bit slower in the last week, but still very good. We’re catching as much snapper as tarakihi, which makes a change. And still picking up  skippies, more now than  earlier in the season,

We had a weekend overnighter and that went well, likewise, a lot more snapper around Mayor in addition to the tarakihi and trevally.

Our drift fishing was slower, but there is still a lot of current making things harder. We got some small bluenose, and some of the smallest gemfish we’ve seen, so called in at the Penguins for the first time in ages, and after a couple of misses, ended up with a top up of good snapper and a couple more big trevs.

Beautiful conditions the whole time, excellent.

    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

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
