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

A good lot of snapper until about 9.30pm

We tried a few variations on the normal routine last week, which yielded some interesting results.

Went to the Pinns midweek and had a good day with a good mixture of snapper and tarakihi through the day.

We then headed back out on an evening trip, trying inside Karewa after a pretty grim effort around the Middle Ground the week before.

It didn’t start well  with only a few kahawai, but checking an old mark paid off, with a good lot of snapper until about 9.30.

Next day was a kids fishing trip, so we stayed close off Omanu to Papamoa and did well on the snapper there, not fast but steady all day, making everyone happy.

Good enough I tried it again on Sunday. Lightning didn’t strike twice though, some came up, slower than Saturday,  so we worked our way to outside Motiti, and most did ok, mainly snapper, with a few tarakihi and trevally and one nice kingy  was a bonus.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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
