Fishing Reports

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

All in all, not one to put in the record books

Last week was a bust. We had a good number booked on Monday, but after the gale blowing Sunday and a similar forecast for Monday, I canned it.

Typically, it was nowhere near as windy, and we couldn’t get the numbers for any alternate days midweek.

Conditions were good, we stopped around the Okaparus and had a good start on the tarakihi, then headed towards the Lab, stopped on good sign, did really well for about 20 minutes, then the current picked up from the South, the fish stopped biting and we tried pretty well everywhere from 80m to 30m for nothing much else for the rest of the day.

All in all, not one to put in the record books.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    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

  • 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
