Fishing Reports

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

Always a good bonus

Cyclone Winston slowed things a bit , but we got an overnighter in Friday/Sat. , still a bit sloppy initially, but we picked up a few porae in the evening. Saturday was  more settled and  the fishing went well . A good variety of  fish, mainly tarakihi and pink maomao, but  we also got a couple of hapuku amongst them. Always a good bonus. Unusually, not a snapper all day, it’s still a bit early for them , but we normally see the odd one.

A couple of makos relieved us of a few fish before moving on, as they do, then it was home and a day off to watch the Paeroa Bike races.

Well worth it too, good racing and  a catchup with some old mates.

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    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)
