Fishing Reports

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

Effects of the big tides and moon

Quite a busy week, with the fishing continuing it’s volatile nature. Earlier in the week we continued in the 80m+ range with good results.

The Pinns and around Mayor mainly producing tarakihi and  red snapper.

Friday was a shocker though, a first in 18 years doing this, nothing takeable caught, some barracuda and scarpies  were  it. And 2 miniscule mackeral around Karewa.

Unbelievable.

So we worked around Motiti  the next few days, and did quite well, still mainly tarakihi, but the odd nice snapper among them.

The effects of the big tides and moon are the most of the reason, tidal currents, wind and swell all over the place. When it eases it’s ok, when they pick up it gets tough.

It’s summer though, hot and calm so good enough.

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!

    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
