Fishing Reports

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

Dolphins and a couple of sharks
27 November 2018

We went to the Pinns on Tuesday, had a reasonable day’s fishing and had dolphins and a couple of sharks, a blue and mako swimming round the boat, in addition to some albatrosses,  real bonus to some young Canadians on board.

We got our Friday overnighter in luckily, after several forecast changes. The evening fishing was steady, tarakihi and some good size snapper.

Saturday we stayed on the Western side of Mayor getting mainly tarakihi, tried the Eastern side when it slowed but not much better. A quick stop on the way home topped up the tarakihi nicely.

Rain and NE wind was bad enough to kill Sunday’s trip though.

    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)

  • 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
