Fishing Reports

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

A better start to October

A better start to  October, with a few days in during the week.

Monday we headed out to the 12 mile and Pinns where we still had the wind and current opposing each other. Neither was too bad though, so while the fishing was steady the conditions were good with a good mix of fish.

Friday we had a SE forecast, the first for a while, so decided to keep in a bit closer, working around the Astrolabe, getting mainly tarakihi before trying  the Okaparus where we got some reasonable snapper.

We continued moving in, but once we got shallower than 40m, things slowed down noticeably. Overall not too bad though.

Saturday was slower, but also more of a social day, so less emphasis on the fishing, more on enjoying the day.

Sunday rained and blew as forecast, so no go.

    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)

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
