We had a busy week, with Tauranga Boys College

We had a busy week, with 3 days taking out students and teachers from Tauranga Boys College. Monday  we worked around the middle ground for not much, but got onto some tarakihi at  Pudney. Tuesday we started at Pudney, only to find there wasn’t a lot happening there this time either. Our final trip was Thursday and after another slow start we ended up doing well inside Motiti, a pleasing finish for the group, who stayed keen and ended up with a good result.

We took a tramping group to  Mayor on Wednesday, picking them up on Friday after fishing our way out Mayor.

The Pinnacles were very slow, but the Garden Patch ticked along quite well and the trampers had good calm trips both ways, good all round.

Saturday was another nice day, although another slow one with the fishing,  frustrating, but hard to do much about, hopefully the Easterly that blew in on Sunday with stir them up a bit.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    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)
