Nice snapper inside Motiti
17 February 2015

The East and S.E. winds made conditions tough for most of the week. We got Thursday in, tried outside Motiti where we’d been doing ok, but the current was too strong to  contend with in conjunction with a big N.E. swell. A pity, as we got a few even so.

Inside Motiti we got onto some nice snapper, they lasted just long enough to make the day, thankfully, because it was pretty slow after that.

A stag do on Saturday saw another good hit of snapper, a different  spot, but similar result. They bit hard for 30/40 minutes, and that was  it.

A bit of luck there, but I’ll take it.

Sunday the current had eased and the tarakihi were more on the bite, also got a few kingies, 1 legal,  some really big kahawai along with snapper and  red snapper.  And conditions got nicer as  the day progressed. An excellent day.

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
