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.


  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!

  • 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
