Fishing Reports

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

An interesting week

An interesting week. We tried around Motiti midweek and did well, with mainly tarakihi.

Friday night/Saturday we overnighted at  Mayor, steady fishing and a good variety of species, and a windy trip home. Sunday, a good  forecast so we headed back to Motiti only for the weather to change completely for the worse, forcing us to the Eastern  side where it was calm, but not much fish, a few snapper and  a couple of  tarakihi.

Things eased a  bit so we worked the middle ground  which was pretty much a non event, a couple of big blue cod and snapper. An excellent crew enjoyed the day regardless, but a tough one.

Monday we headed out to Mayor, the predicted rain didn’t show, Coromandel stopped most of it and we did ge t some on the way home, but the fishing was good despite a lot of current so a big improvement on the Sunday

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
     

  • 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
