Fishing Reports

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

Cudas being the jokers in the pack

After some pretty average days, I  gave Town Pt one last go, with the same result, very little fish, so we won’t be trying there for some time.

Went back outside Motiti and got hammered by barracuda, but  finally found reasonable tarakihi in the deeper water.

Thursday was a half day, and still couldn’t get onto much in the shallower water so over the weekend worked around Motiti and had a couple of good days on tarakihi with some snapper also. Best of all, no barracuda.

The warmer currents coming  down normally make for unsettled fishing conditions this time of year, and it’s certainly the case at present.

Very much good one day tough the next, with the ‘cudas being the jokers in the pack.

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

  • 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
