Fishing Reports

Plan your next fishing charter aboard the MV Manutere out of Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, NZ.

15/18kg kingy
29 August 2018

A quiet week, with only an overnighter Friday/Saturday on.

I was expecting some good fishing, with light SW forecast and a full moon, plus we’d had good results the previous week.

However, the wind was stronger than expected, and a stop on the way out was a  non event. So out to Mayor, where we relearned the danger of making predictions about fishing. Good conditions on the Eastern side but very slow.

The next day was good though, mainly tarakihi  in deeper water, some red snapper, snapper and trevally, plus a good  15/18kg kingy which had devoured a red snapper initially  caught.

All in all, an excellent trip.

    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)
