Fishing Reports

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

Merry Christmas!

The final report before Christmas and nothing dramatic has happened in the last week. Mainly fishable weather, with the catches still ok in the deeper water, but the offshore winds  keeping the shallower water on the slow side.

We still aren’t seeing any skippies on the lures after it looked encouraging  a fortnight ago, with kahawai and dolphin schools being regularly seen.

What is noticeable is the amount of smaller fish seen and caught [and released ], so maybe the bigger ones are chilling out for the moment.

So,  thanks to the people who’ve fished with us through the year, our regulars in particular,  have a good Christmas and we’ll see you again in due course.

    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)
