Fishing Reports

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

Conditions were good, but they just weren't that hungry

We got a couple of midweek trips in, with both continuing the trend of the previous week, the snapper moving into  deeper water , 35/50m and generally slowing down.

Conditions were good, but they just weren’t that hungry.

We tried the deeper water off Motiti also, and it was better but still not easy.

The weekend was a no go, with  enough wind and rain to call both trips off, so onto next week we go.

    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)
