Queen's Birthday

Queen’s Birthday turned out to be a good day, no thanks to the 4 groups of no shows too ignorant to let us know they weren’t coming. Still the people who did caught plenty and enjoyed a beautiful day as well.

Friday was another excellent trip, and Saturday looked similar, but the light winds predicted weren’t so light so quite bouncy, but not enough to put off the fish [or the fishers]. So a bit harder work, but still well worth the effort. Sunday was back to calm and clear and another good day with more good catches.

We’ve had a lot more calm settled days so far than in quite a few years, so it might have been a wet autumn, but this time of year is normally good fishing and it’s nice to get the days in to take advantage of it.

    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)
