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

2 great days to start November, even saw our 1st sunfish

We started the week with a couple of trips to Town Pt, then outside and around Motiti, neither of which was particularly noteworthy, some tarakihi and a few snapper.

On Sunday we headed back out to the Pinns, and it was much the same there, the day was so calm we headed to Mayor, and it paid off with an excellent day on the tarakihi, so Monday we tried there again, and never got a fish in the 1st 2 hours.

Luckily, they eventually came on quite well again. So 2 great days to start November, even saw our 1st sunfish and pod of dolphins for the season to top it off.

One noticeable thing was that all the tarakihi had no mud or sand in their gut, they’d all been feeding on krill [eggs, not adults], possibly why the fishing’s been slow.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    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
