The best snapper fishing in a few years
18 May 2017
0 0

The bookings are slowing as the days get shorter, which is a pity, because the fishing is still going very well. We’ve had the best snapper fishing in a few years, with a lot of good sized fish caught in most areas. Disappointing for the exspurts who’re busy saying what crisis the species is in. Strange how it’s only snapper that are mentioned. Still, they are almost the only fish in the ocean.

Strange too, that all the groups use the same data; the commercial fishermen are the only ones who file catch  returns, so pro or anti, it all comes from the same source. Just depends on your point of view.

Fishing, like everything else, is cyclic and the ocean currents have the biggest effect, but how often are they mentioned as a factor from season to season?

    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)

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.
