Fishing Reports

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

Fishing good, despite cyclone Lusi
19 March 2014

The week was dominated by the news that a cyclone was heading down from the tropics. Huge drama, people buying out supermarkets in preparation for the event. It all seemed a bit over the top, given that it was supposed to hit on Saturday, blow over by Sunday and be fine by  Monday.

Which it was, the Metservice got that right more or less.

So, we  cancelled the weekends trips, naturally, which was a pity, as we’d had good weather and fishing up to then, with an overnighter and day trip both catching a good variety of fish.

Mayor and the deeper reefs are producing well, the drift fishing was a bit slower, although we still got bluenose and gemfish, just a bit off the bite compared to recent trips.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

    Once again  Brett thank you and   son Ben for a trip that we will talk about for a long time

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

    Tanya
