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

Cleaning and repainting the engine room

The maintenance continues but we’re getting closer to being back in the water.

Cleaning and repainting the engine room and replacing  various engine components while the motor and gearbox are out also adds to time taken but well worth it.

Talking to a friend who out around Steeles Reef off Waihi Beach last weekend where they had a humpback whale cruising the area, slapping his tail and generally bopping around.

There seems to have been a few more sightings than normal this year.

The fishings been slow, and  water temperature’s been down too, likely all interrelated. Colder temps change the current flows and create different conditions and we get the usual variations from season to season.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

  • 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

    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)
