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.


  • Thanks for a fabulous day on the water. Just ate some great fish and washed it down with nz Pinot.

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.




    Just to say thank you Brett and Des for making our fishing trip last Sunday so enjoyable. You were both so helpful.We all had a great day and have been eating fish all week!

    Thanks again
    Jacquie and Cornelia
