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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

  • 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
