Captain Ben and Dickie Paul were awesome. To be fair to them though...if you make a Manutere booking...be decent and show up. These trips must remain profitable if you want them to be there next time you want them.

Recommend Captain Brett and his deckhand and their boat Motutere. Every thing i expected of a charter was carried out. They were both extremely helpful whether preparing bait, asking everyone how thy were faring and more importantly, untangling lines during the numerous tangle ups. Lastly i would recommend that people always take warm gear regardless of weather

Know that it is winter on a boat with a few people on board with various experience so if sport fishings you thing then probably not the trip for you but they do offer this option on different bookings. you will catch fish with this boat and captain

It may pay to advise clients with childrenchildren that in the lead up to Christmas there may be more 'Drinkers' than Fishermen on board. OK for adults but not so good for the 10-16 year olds. Brett is a great Skipper and the boat well maintained and equipped were it not for the 'over imbibers' the trip would have been fantastic and we will certainly book again - just not in December!

THE HARBOUR IS QUITE DEEP SO YOU WILL NEED HEAVY SINKERS IF YOU ARE USING YOUR OWN TACKLE.

Take plenty of sun screen and a good sun hat. A selection of baits fishing can be slow and patchy

Check what species are being targeted and at what depth to preselect correct hook rig and sinker choices.

do your homework before booking don't do online speak to who you are booking with to make sure you get all answers you feel you need for your experience

Take a day on Te Kuia or Manutere(?) as an introduction. If you like it then go wider for an overnight around Mayor Island if thats your preference. Fish can be caught anywhere.

If you don't mind a little bit of choppy (not bad) and random rain from time to time it is great - not too hot and not too cold

Wear warm layers so you can remove and add if needed. Rain coat, beanie, gumboots.
