A  bit nastier weather last week forced us to can our Thursday trip, but it came right in time toget a 24hour trip on Friday /Saturday.

A good trip it too, with a total of 7 kingfish caught, between 10 and 20 kg. The bottom fishing was also productive with a good mix of species, snapper, golden snapper tarakihi, maomao, and a few porae. A couple of barracuda and a mako weren’t quite so welcome but kept the interest up.

We were  keen to get the Sunday in as well, but torrential rain at the Marina  before we left and a rain radar forecast showing rain all day persuaded me to pull the pin.

That bit us, it stopped raining about 8.30 and was lovely and calm all day.

When the Metservice get it wrong, there’s no half measures…….

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

  • 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,

    Shane Janssen
