The game fishing continues to be a standout season

We’ve been bopping around trying to find where the tarakihi  have gone since the cyclone slid past a couple of weeks ago.

The snapper have been good in most places we’ve tried, but tarakihi  not so much.

We went out  to the Pinns on Tuesday , mainly snapper again, then came back to shallower water  and did pick up some  tarakihi there.

A day trip around Motiti on Saturday was more of the same.

An evening fish on the way to Mayor saw us have a good run on the snapper until after dark, and on Sunday we finally got onto tarakihi, good size and condition, with quite a few getting close to spawning. A 3m odd Mako, enjoyed a few of them too, really good to see, a beautiful animal.

The game fishing continues to be a standout season, with more tagging and landing of mainly  striped marlin and mahimahi over the weekend.

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    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)
