Fishing Reports

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

A Lot of Plankton and Krill Being Seen
5 November 2014

We had a couple of short days early in the week, which reinforced the fact that the fish have not shown up in the shallower water.

We covered a lot of ground in the 2 days, East and West Pudney, the Okaparus , Middle Ground, and outside Motiti, and pretty well all fish caught were in deeper than 60m.

As mentioned earlier, theres still a lot of plankton and krill being seen and I think this is a big part of the slow fishing.

November has started well, so if we continue with this settled weather, hopefully we’ll see a bit more action.

Saturday we went back to the deep water, and it was still a bit slow, but a lot better overall.

    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)

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
