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

Fish ticking along steadily

We worked a few different areas last week, with reasonable outcomes on the various trips.

Went to the Pinns on Tuesday and had a good easy day, didn’t have to move much due to shifting currents and wind, and the fish ticked along steadily, mainly tarakihi, with a fair amount of small kingies coming up.  In fact, we’ve caught more rat kingies in the last week or two than I’ve seen before. They’re often in the shallow water outside the Mt, but lately they’ve been in the middle ground, the pins, outside and inside Motiti, and all around the 50 to 60cm mark, a bit frustrating because they cause more tangles than the big ones, which mainly fight more straight up and down.

The other trips we worked the middle ground,  which was ok, the snapper have showed up in shallower water, so while not red hot, we found  enough to keep things interesting.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • 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
