Fishing Reports

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 .

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

  • 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
