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

Astrolabe finally open, striped marlin popping up outside Motiti
12 April 2016

The weather’s getting a bit cooler, but the fishing’s still going well.

We had to have a look around the Astrolabe seeing it’s finally open. We made a couple of stops on the way and got a selection of snapper, trevally and tarakihi.

A good start. The Lab was ok, but nothing exceptional.

Did a similar run on Saturday, with similar results, although the deeper water was  slower. Quite strange conditions, strong surface current but slow fishing even though no apparent bottom current. We ended up off Motiti in 40/50m where it was quite good.

Sunday was more of the same but slower, and we ended up doing best inside Motiti.

A bonus was a striped marlin  popping up beside us outside Motiti. Only the 2nd time I’ve seen one in that area.

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, 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
