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.

    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

    Regards

    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
