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

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
