Back to the 1 day week again. We got Friday in, the forecast was iffy enough for us to head towards the Penguin shoals  rather than any further out. We had a couple of stops on the way, and got fish- mainly tarakihi and snapper, immediately at both of them, both petered out quite quickly though.

The Penguins was similar, initially good, then move and get  some more, which worked for a while.

After a couple of fishless stops we went back in to Pudney, which also went well at first, with red snapper, pink maomao snapper and even a sucker Hapuku.

So a damp but quite good day overall.

The weekend though, was a non event, too much rain and wind on both days unfortunately.

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind 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)
