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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi Daphne ,

    Please thank Brett for a great trip the other day

    We didn’t get on to the Kingi’s on this occasion but we do appreciate the conditions were against us and we know Brett did everything possible . Still, everyone got plenty of fillets to take home and we thoroughly enjoyed the day

    You will see us again and we will recommend you

    Brett, just a note to thank you and Wade for looking after us and helping with the filleting (well.... doing most of the fish).

    Every one passes on thier thanks, and wishes you the best for the season.

  • 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
