Some good settled, blue skied week was nice, although windy on Tuesday. We started close, got a few off Omanu, then trickled down to Town Pt, where we got nothing. The wind eased so out to deep water outside Motiti where we got snapper and a few tarakihi, then the wind picked up and time to go.

We had a quiet evening fish on an  overnighter to Mayor, some snapper and tarakihi. The next morning was better, with 2 kingies, plus a good selection of species and a couple of bluenose on the ‘puku drifts.

Sunday we were outside Motiti, a nice settled day and good fishing, quite a few snapper and  good sized tarakihi, red snapper,  a good mix of species generally. Nice to get a few days in again.

  • 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,

    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)
