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.

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

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
