Reef trips around Motiti with good results
30 November 2016
0 0

A good start to the week, with a couple of reef trips around Motiti with good results. We’re still not finding much in the shallower water, but around the 50/60m has picked up, they do take a bit of finding sometimes though.

Wednesday we had a pickup  from Mayor, and stopped at the Pinns on the way, also some good fishing, snapper as well as tarakihi, with delightful  barracuda to balance things up.

The wind picked up and while Saturday was  good, Sunday was just too much. We had a few  caught around Karewa, but pulled the pin early, it is supposed to be enjoyable, not an endurance test.

    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)

    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

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!
     
    Regards,
    Lynne.
