Fishing Reports

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

25/35knot predictions, it's no fun and nobody thanks you for the experience

Another frustrating week of volatile weather and cancelled trips because of it.

What makes it doubly aggravating is the fact that the various fronts, troughs etc, eased for a while but it’s now back to square one.

The forecasts have been quite accurate but are often  late showing up, so initially it looks as though they’ve got it wrong again.

But we’re not going on 25/35knot predictions, it’s no fun and nobody thanks you for the experience.

And this week is looking like more of the same.

Maybe this supermoon is some of the issue.


  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen


    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!


    Just to say thank you Brett and Des for making our fishing trip last Sunday so enjoyable. You were both so helpful.We all had a great day and have been eating fish all week!

    Thanks again
    Jacquie and Cornelia
