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.

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

  • 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
     

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron
