Fishing Reports

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

Another great week

Another great week with similar results to the preceding week.

The game fishing continues the run of marlin being caught and tagged, while the bottom and reef fishing was still on the slow side in both the shallow and deeper water.

On our last day out however, after planning to work the middle ground for the day, the sign and catch rate were non existent so we went outside Motiti and  actually found some good sign, the best looking in quite a while.

Even more encouraging, we caught good quantities of tarakihi  that were on the bite.

It’s been a bit of a different season all around this year, maybe now it will start to get a bit closer to the norm.

    Brett & the Manutere, well i must say that over the last 8 years or more i have been out on day & overnight trips plus the TGA game fishing one base & charter tournaments  with Brett, you would be hard pushed to find a better skipper who will do his upmost to put you on the fish !!! & i mean go the extra mile !! literally, always good for a yarn, (fishing, politics, rugby etc etc,) & not forgetting the overnight trips tradditional continental breakfast, beans, eggs, bacon, toast, & a wicked coffee !

    The Manutere is a solid fishing platform of which i have spent many enjoyable hours aboard, and hope to spend many more !!!!

    Cheers Brett, till next time ! (soon)

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,
