Fishing Reports

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

Coming into the best time of year for bottom fishing

A calm and clear  week was nice, as was the fishing. A half day inside Motiti midweek was ok, with plenty of snapper caught but more undersize coming up than has been the case previously.

Saturday we went outside Motiti and picked up more good sized ones, and as a bonus also got  a good number of tarakihi and red snapper.

Sunday was similar, and with less breeze than Saturday,  conditions were even nicer.

No skippies this week though, the cooler weather looks like it’s finally moved them offshore.

We’re coming into the best time of year for bottom fishing, hopefully the weather’s kind.

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

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
