Fishing Reports

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

Best winter to date in years

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.

  • 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
