Fishing Reports

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

Best winter to date in years
19 July 2017

This has definitely been the best winter to date in years. The  blows have been full on when they’ve hit, but in between we’ve had good settled weather and calm conditions, a welcome change from the last decade or so.

The fishing’s reflected  it, generally not much current and good catches. Though there was more current  last week, consequently we spent more time shifting and resetting to get onto them.. The overall catches were good though, with   the odd legal kingfish along with the usual mix.

The deep water drifts for hapuku, bass and the like  have been  a different story. Maybe next  season, but at present we’re not too keen on chasing them. Too much work for too little result.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

  • 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
