Good amounts of fish caught
10 July 2018

We went out on Thursday and had a reasonable day, quite good amounts of fish caught, but it entailed a lot of reanchoring. We’d catch a few, then nothing, reanchor catch a few, nothing reanchor, etc etc. The tarakihi have finished spawning, and they’re pretty relaxed at present, just feeding when they feel in the mood, which is less than the fishers would like. We went back to another shallower spot and did ok initially, then back to bait stealing.

Saturday we tried a few different spots to normal, and were pleasantly surprised to find an area where they, mainly tarakihi, but an assortment of species including a nice kingy, went quite consistently for some time. A bit easier than Thursday.

Sunday’s forecast was bad, but about 12hours late, so we could have got the day in.

    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)
