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

Another good, interesting week

Another good, interesting week, which started with a couple of bottom fishing trips outside Motiti.

We stopped at a mark inside the Okaparus, but only got  a lot of little snapper  so flagged that  and continued onwards. The tarakihi were biting well, and again on Thursday, where we also picked up a couple of nice kingfish.  We’ve been getting a few while  bottom fishing this season.

An overnighter to Mayor saw another slow evening fish, but the bottom fishing next day was good. We had a go at some drift fishing, but the bluenose weren’t biting so we finished off back at Mayor with some good tarakihi and a bonus couple of  Hapuku.

A day Hapuku trip started well with  6/8  bluenose , then just the odd one or two for the remaining drifts, plus a nice bass, and a few skippies on the way  home.

A decent day on the tarakihi on Sunday, though it would have been more successful if 3 bronze whalers didn’t join the party, stealing fish, lines and sinkers from the bottom to just under the boat. Never seen them in deep water before and wouldn’t mind not seeing them again.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis

  • 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
