Fishing Reports

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

Middle Ground and Papamoa tarakihi and snapper starting to show

Last week was another fairly quiet one and we ended up doing Sunday only as The weather was still not good on Saturday. We mainly worked the shallower water around the Middle Ground and Papamoa areas.

The tarakihi are starting to show up more in close now, with a few sizeable snapper [and quite a few little ones] among them.

There was a bonus for everyone when some humpback whales were sighted cruising around not too far from the entrance.

They're not seen all that often so a great end to the day.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

    Once again  Brett thank you and   son Ben for a trip that we will talk about for a long time

  • 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
