Fishing Reports

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

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards

    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)
