Fishing Reports

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

A busy week initially
2 December 2018
0 0

A busy week initially, with an average ‘puku trip with a couple of bluenose and some tarakihi from the Penguins.

Wednesday we bottom fished outside Motiti, considerably better catching for mainly tarakihi, Thursday was similar, a bit slower due to increased current, which also brought barracuda and mackeral into the mix and kept us busy sorting them out.

Very large quantities of jellyfish in the water, the N.E. bringing them South.

Friday we had a good start  inside the Labe, but the forecasted N.E. was a few hours early, snotty enough to force us into the harbour, pleasant conditions but not much fish.

Persistent wind and rain effectively killed the weekend. Not a great start to  December.

    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)

    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!!

  • 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

    Regards
