Fishing Reports

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

Amazing amount of current, but did well all around the boat

Another up and down week with the fishing. We went down to town Pt on Thursday and had a pretty good or pretty slow day, depending where you were on the boat.

The ones in line with the current did well, the others not so much. A lot of very good sized tarakihi too, although it did taper off as the day progressed.

So Friday we tried it again, less current and wind, but also a lot less fish. By 11.30 I’d had it so we headed outside Motiti to the deeper water.

No sign on most marks, but a little on one so we gave it a go and, amazingly given the amount of current, did well all around the boat.

Saturday was a stag do thankfully, a really hard day, but nice enough in shallow water. Sunday canned, too much wind.

    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)

  • 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
