OK fishing on both the East and West sides of Mayor

We got a Monday trip away, which started well, with some nice tarakihi caught at the 10 mile , on our way to the Pinns. Unfortunately the forecast was woeful, and our 10/15 knot Westerly turned into about 30 from the SW, so we ended up working back through the Karewa spots, which produced next to nothing.

A  ½  day around Brewis went well and we got to the Pinns on Friday. Also good fishing.

Saturday/Sunday’s overnighter was another toughy, had short periods of ok fishing on both the East and West sides of Mayor but then faded away. Possibly due to some pretty big tides after the full moon, it sounded like it was hard everywhere, but looking for reasons is a big call. And fish don’t do interviews.

    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

  • 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
