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

15+kg kingy in the early morning

Just the one overnighter this week. Out to Mayor on Friday evening with a couple of stops on the way for a few snapper, but not very exciting so on to Mayor.

The crew fished well into the night, but still not a lot apart from koreru, smallish porae and a couple more snapper. Des, my fishing machine decky, did however pull up a 15+kg kingy in the early morning, proving once again you have to have a line in the water to catch a fish.

The day continued well, with a good variety of species coming up, not as many snapper as previously though. We then headed deeper for some drift fishing.
Did a couple of drifts for one small bluenose and then headed home as the wind started to pick up enough from the N.E. to make it quite uncomfortable.

Enough so that I decided to can the  Sunday trip .

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
