Good snapper around the Okaparus

A few days off this week as we slipped the Manutere for a bottom clean and antifouling.

A good time to do it as the weather was fairly ordinary, the rain not helping with the painting initially, but was ok by Thursday.

We had a short day on the Friday, so worked a bit closer to home. Not a lot initially around the under 30m areas, but we found good snapper around the Okaparus, and tarakihi as well a bit further out.

Sunday we headed out deeper, and had some good fishing around the Pinns, which lasted till about 11.30, then it all went pretty quiet.

We fishing our way back, from 65  to under 30m but got very little more, good conditions, they just weren’t hungry. Oh, and we caught another skippy, fifth for the season!

  • 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,

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
