Fishing Reports

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

An excellent finish to a fairly rough week

We had a bit of a short week due to the weather and swell running, but our public day Sunday was good.

We started in close and were getting some nice snapper, but just too many kahawai. A few are fine, but the amount of tangles they create wears thin fairly quickly.

We went to some of our deeper marks, which generally don’t hold them, but they were even worse there.

Finally ended up around Motiti  where we got a lot of snapper, quite a few trevally and the odd kahawai. Much better!

Monday  we started inside the Middle Ground outside Omanu and towards Papamoa, but nothing much happened there, so it was back to Motiti for another good day on the snapper and trevally.

We decided to try a bit deeper for tarakihi, where the current was more in evidence. It took a few resets, but we ended up doing quite well on them also.

The current also brought the barracuda, but not too badly, only 4/5 sets of gear lost to the lovelies.

So, an excellent finish to a fairly rough week.

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

  • 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
     

  • 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
