Fishing Reports

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

Both the bottom fishing and the Hapuku fishing were excellent last weekend

We were hoping that the week of NE winds and rain would bring the fish and warmer water down, and that seems to have happened.

Both the bottom fishing and the Hapuku fishing were excellent last weekend, and it seemed to be pretty general with most areas having good catches.

We had a couple of overnighters around Mayor, with good quantities of snapper showing up in addition to the tarakihi, and bluenose and gemfish in the deeper water.

Also saw some schools of skipjack and got a few of them[less 1 to a mako], big fish too, so hopefully this will continue for some time, a settled autumn would be a bonus for the year.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards

  • 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
