Fishing Reports

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

Bigger females are well into spawning now

Another short week, with a good day’s fishing on the Monday and the weather closing in over the weekend for more postponed trips.

The snapper aren’t around in the same quantities they were a few weeks ago, but still some nice fish being caught.

The tarakihi are still going well. The bigger females are well into spawning now, and will be for the next month or so.

We’ve also been seeing a fair amount of kingies coming up, a frustrating amount of them going about 72 to 74 cm, but the odd well legal one among them.

It’s been a good winter compared to the last few years, mainly settled with the odd good blow coming through, then settling again.

A pity the timing generally sees the blows coming through on the weekends.

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!

  • 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
