We got the Monday in last week, a bit of a slow day at the Pinns, the size of the tarakihi wasn’t as good either, generally a good sign they’re not hungry.

We picked up  more around the 10mile to top things up though.

The rest of the week was a non event, mainly thanks to Cyclone Pam. The 5 days anticipation luckily wasn’t as bad as it could have been, but enough to kill the weekend.

I was crayfishing in Gisborne when Cyclone Bola hit, the destruction and damage on land and sea was  almost unbelievable and not  something I’d like to see again, even without pots in the water.

It will be interesting to see what it’s done to the fishing, though.

    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 Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,
