Dolphins and a couple of sharks
27 November 2018
0 0

We went to the Pinns on Tuesday, had a reasonable day’s fishing and had dolphins and a couple of sharks, a blue and mako swimming round the boat, in addition to some albatrosses,  real bonus to some young Canadians on board.

We got our Friday overnighter in luckily, after several forecast changes. The evening fishing was steady, tarakihi and some good size snapper.

Saturday we stayed on the Western side of Mayor getting mainly tarakihi, tried the Eastern side when it slowed but not much better. A quick stop on the way home topped up the tarakihi nicely.

Rain and NE wind was bad enough to kill Sunday’s trip 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)
