Persistent fishermen over from Hong Kong
12 September 2016

After last week’s beautiful conditions, we were looking forward to fishing throughout the week. Unfortunately the weather forecast for Saturday turned a bit sour, but we had some persistent fishermen over from Hong Kong, who couldn’t wait to get out regardless. It was blowing Southerly, so we fished in close for the day.

The fishing around the Middle Ground proved to be quite tough, but there was a lot of current on the bottom which wouldn’t have been helping. The sign was quite high off the bottom from the screen on the sounder. This is generally a pretty good indication the feeding pattern will be a bit sporadic. Not to worry though, the guys still had a great day, which is the main thing.

Sunday would have been the pick of the bunch, but we didn’t manage to get out, fingers crossed for some settled weather this weekend!

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
