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

Currents dropping leading to good fishing
7 March 2014
0 0

A busy week for us, and a pretty good one in terms of conditions and fish caught.

The erratic and contradictory currents and sea conditions we were experiencing seem to have dropped away and better fishing is the result.

The deeper water is where we’ve been working mainly and the tarakihi have been going well, with the odd nice snapper in the mix.

A part day on Saturday saw us around Karewa, nothing much in under 20m, but outside the island we picked up a few sizeable snapper at most stops, enough for a reasonable day’s fishing. We also caught 3 or 4 tarakih, a couple of nice blue cod and a few kahawai to add a bit to the mix.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    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)
