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

A mixed bag of results last week, but all dominated by some pretty strong currents.

Thursday we tried around Brewis, quite good for a couple of hours, but when it eased we worked around the Labe for very little, although 1 fisher pulled up a small hapuku and a good tarakihi on her first drop. Unfortunately that was about it. The current had picked up a lot, and the fishing reflected it.

Saturday we stayed closer to Motiti, worked from 30 to 80m and caught very little everywhere, just too much current again.

Sunday we tried the Pinns, still heaps of current , but the fishing was good, even got a few quite good snapper, the first for some time.

    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

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron
