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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen

    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)
