Fishing Reports

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

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

  • 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 Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
