Fishing Reports

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

Better days than we could have hoped for

The strong winds prevailed again last week, but we had a busy weekend, which was a pleasant change

We started with a day trip on Friday where we went to Town Pt for a change. Nothing much down there so we went out to the Eastern side of Motiti and did quite well, even saw a couple of whales spouting.

We then dropped a school group off at Mayor that night, a bit of a rolly trip with the Westerly blowing but good conditions at the island.

Saturday and Sunday we continued going on the lee side of Motiti. The fishing was consistent, and with the effects of the winds minimised, they were better days than we could have hoped for.

Interestingly, with all the wind, there was still a strong Easterly current running, normally the wind will dictate current direction, especially after couple of days.

    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)
