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

Cyclonic conditions, but still good bottom fishing
23 April 2014

The Metservice did themselves proud last week. The tail end of the cyclone that hit before Easter was about 10 times worse than the one that got the full week’s advance warnings 5 weeks ago-which did blow and rain a bit. They celebrated the miscall by then getting the next 4 days forecasts just as badly wrong. Lots of wind when there was none, not much when it was pumping, changing directions and speed with every forecast, then reverting to what they’d predicted 2/3 days earlier. Very impressive. And not unusual. They were excellent for years, but the last 18 months or so have seen a big decline  in accuracy.

So Saturday’s Hapuku trip was a bust, but the bottom fishing over the next couple of days was good, less snapper, but more tarakihi  in the deeper water outside Motiti and around Mayor[until the 30/35+kn NW] blew us away.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

    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
