Fishing Reports

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

Deeper water with good consistent results
19 May 2014

Another week of great weather, warm water and good fishing.

On the “if it’s not broken don’t fix it” premise, we’ve been continuing to work the deeper water with good consistent results.

We’ve been getting good mixes of snapper and tarakihi, with a few trevally and kingies[mainly undersize] as well.

One consistent quirk has been we’ve had to be right on the mark, miss the fish by 20m and they will not come, reanchoring is the only option, which can be frustrating with frequent small wind shifts moving the boat.

A breezy SW saw water temps drop a bit, 23* early in the week, around 20* on Sunday, but we’re still getting a few skippies every day, and a marlin was caught over the weekend, so we’re hoping that the warm currents continue to bring the fish into the shallower water.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
