Mayor evening fish produces some nice snapper up to 6kg

It took a few days for the swell to settle  after the cyclone had slid down the east coast, but we got out on Friday and found that the snapper had moved in.

We had good catches around the western side of Motiti, nice sized fish too, with a few trevally, kahawai and tarakihi as well.

An evening fish on the way  to Mayor  also provided some nice snapper up to 6kg, until sundown, no moon meant nothing much after dark.

The next day around Mayor was also good, steady fishing with snapper and tarakihi despite a lot of current running.

Sunday was beautiful, no current, perfect conditions, but a slower day everywhere on the snapper, and we couldn’t find tarakihi at all.

Normally the deeper water is consistent now but not at the moment . Fickle fish.

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

    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)

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards
