Another week of  ups and downs with the fishing We went outside Motiti where we’ve done quite well in the past but had a  slow day, finally getting onto fish on the Western end.

Saturday we went to the Pinns, a beautiful day and good fishing, with big trevally, tarakihi, and red snapper and snapper going well.

Sunday we went back out, conditions good but not quite as nice as  Saturday, and it was really hard. The wind picked up,  so we tried an alternative mark in a bit closer , and luckily it paid off, with a good hard hit of tarakihi which made the day. It’s certainly not dull at present, frustrating sometimes though.

  • 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

    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)
