Fishing Reports

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

Continuation of good Monday weather
23 July 2015

The week started well, with us getting Monday in with a continuation of the good weekend weather

We worked a few areas in 60 odd metres, some of which paid off and a couple that didn’t.

The main difference was where we caught fish, mainly tarakihi, with  some snapper, they were showing hard on the bottom on the sounder.

As the day progressed the sign came off the bottom and into the midwater, when we stopped catching- apart from the odd red cod, which seem to come on the bite when everything else stops.

A good day, but that was it for the week, as more polar blasts kept everyone at home, preferably indoors.


  • 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

    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)
