Good weather last week

Well, woohoo, we had some good weather last week and actually got 3 days fishing in. The first time for about 2 months. The fishing continued to be pretty good too.

Our midweek trip around  Brewis and the Lab saw mainly tarakihi coming up, with a legal kingy as well as the usual odd snapper and red snapper.

Saturday was a bit sloppier, but fishable, and also a good day overall.

Sunday was a particularly nice day but the current had picked up overnight and things  slowed down a lot so we took a punt and headed outside Motiti. This paid off as there was nowhere near the current and the tarakihi were a lot livelier. So it ended up another good day for all. And the coming week’s weather looks ok too.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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 ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

    Once again  Brett thank you and   son Ben for a trip that we will talk about for a long time

    This is from the… BPT pig  hunting  Whanau

    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)
