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

  • 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

    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!!

    Lynne.

  • 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.

    Cheers

    Paul
