Fishing Reports

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

Changeable weather continues

Back to a one day week as the changeable weather continues.

We got away on Saturday in excellent settled conditions and had a stop at the Pinns, but the current was very strong, so continued to Mayor, where it was still  strong but fishable with quite a good variety of fish around, porae; snapper, red snapper, tarakihi and pink maomao mainly.

The big tides after the new moon contribute to the current, I think.

Interesting that in summer the biggest tides are after the full moon, in winter they’re after the new one and are relatively even in spring and autumn. I wonder how many bite time charts factor that in?

    Brett & the Manutere, well i must say that over the last 8 years or more i have been out on day & overnight trips plus the TGA game fishing one base & charter tournaments  with Brett, you would be hard pushed to find a better skipper who will do his upmost to put you on the fish !!! & i mean go the extra mile !! literally, always good for a yarn, (fishing, politics, rugby etc etc,) & not forgetting the overnight trips tradditional continental breakfast, beans, eggs, bacon, toast, & a wicked coffee !

    The Manutere is a solid fishing platform of which i have spent many enjoyable hours aboard, and hope to spend many more !!!!

    Cheers Brett, till next time ! (soon)
