Still working the deeper water

We got a few days in a row in last week, the forecasts were pretty accurate which was nice, and the weather was too.

We’re still working the deeper water, although there’s been quite good snapper fishing off the beaches apparently.

It’s been good in the 80+m though, a good mix of snapper, tarakihi and trevally with the odd good kingy.

We had a good overnighter Thursday/Friday. The snapper went hard in the evening and the tarakihi were good around Mayor the next day, even though there was quite a lot of current. Not as much as around Motiti though, where it was just about unfishable.

It can be weird though, we’ve had days where it’s an Easterly current  at the Pinns, and a few miles in it’s straight West. Certainly keeps you guessing ..

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys

    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)
