Fishing Reports

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

Bigger snapper seem to be camped in the deeper water

Another one day week for us, with Saturday being the one.

We stayed in a bit closer than we have been, and worked in the 50/60m depths. We decided against going any deeper as there was enough easterly breeze to make it doubtful there’d be any gains in doing so.

Plus, it was still good fishing, mainly tarakihi, as  the bigger snapper seem to be camped in the deeper water, with the smaller ones shallower.

The forecast looked snotty for Sunday, so we flagged it. Naturally it looked ok Sunday morning, but it often does when you’re not out in it.  So discretion was the call for the day.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

    Once again  Brett thank you and   son Ben for a trip that we will talk about for a long time

    Cheers

  • 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

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards
