Guys from Vanuatu out celebrating their Independence Day

Nothing much happening through the week, but the weekend was good. Well the fishing was good, but the weather on Saturday was a lot worse than the forecast.

Quite nice initially, but the SW that was supposed to  ease steadily picked up to 30 odd knots forcing us in to the shallower water, which  performed quite well, with snapper and tarakihi mainly.

One bonus was we had a good escort of dolphins on the way out, and a whale spouted several times close by, not that common a sight and always to see.

Sunday the forecast was on the money, a beautiful day, good fishing and an excellent group of guys from Vanuatu out celebrating their Independence Day.

More than made up for the sloppy Saturday

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

    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)
