More snapper than tarakihi
15 April 2014
0 0

We’ve been targeting more snapper than tarakihi lately, weather and conditions have meant that the deeper reefs have not  been as accessible.

Around the Okaparus has been quite consistently good, although Sunday’s Easterly made things a bit bouncy when we headed outside Motiti. We even managed a few tarakihi, which are abundant around  Mayor and the deeper water, but very hard to find under 50m, the Middle Ground being particularly hard.

We had junior anglers from the Te Puke Citizens Club on Saturday, so stayed shallow, working down the coast to Papamoa East. It wasn’t  too bad in close, but a lot  slower when we angled out towards the Knoll and  tried some of the spots a little deeper. Still, a good day for all.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen

    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
    Jo Davis
