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


  • 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.

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

    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.


    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
