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

A good start to August!

It was a good end to the month, with three days in a row of nice  weather and good fishing to boot.

We took out a group from Vanuatu on Thursday, most hadn’t used a rod, handlining  being their usual method of fishing, but they got the hang of things quickly and did very well on mainly tarakihi. We also had a couple of makos show up and put on a bit of a show, unusual to see them at this time of year, but good entertainment

Friday  was a bit slower at the 12mile, we went shallower but  nothing great, so Saturday we started at the 12 , still slow so went to the Pinns, where the snapper showed up in good numbers, not so many tarakihi.

A good start to August though.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  •  

    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!!
     
    Regards,
    Lynne.

  • 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

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
