Cudas being the jokers in the pack

After some pretty average days, I  gave Town Pt one last go, with the same result, very little fish, so we won’t be trying there for some time.

Went back outside Motiti and got hammered by barracuda, but  finally found reasonable tarakihi in the deeper water.

Thursday was a half day, and still couldn’t get onto much in the shallower water so over the weekend worked around Motiti and had a couple of good days on tarakihi with some snapper also. Best of all, no barracuda.

The warmer currents coming  down normally make for unsettled fishing conditions this time of year, and it’s certainly the case at present.

Very much good one day tough the next, with the ‘cudas being the jokers in the pack.

    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)
