Fishing Reports

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

Another good days fishing
14 August 2018

A quiet week, plenty of nice weather but the phone’s been quiet and we ended up only getting the Saturday in.

Another good days fishing, it’s certainly been better in the deeper water, over 50m.

For quite some time now spots that used to fish quite well, the middle ground and Karewa in particular, don’t have any consistency. Fish sign is often on the same marks, but hovering 5 to 15m off the bottom and having little feeding bursts at best. So whether they’re feeding mainly on plankton, krill etc midwater, or conditions just don’t suit, it’s definitely changed.

It’ll be interesting to see what the summer’s like.

 

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
     

  • 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.

    Cheers

    Paul
