Fishing Reports

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

A busy week initially

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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Thanks for a fabulous day on the water. Just ate some great fish and washed it down with nz Pinot.

    Ross the Aussie

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
