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

Fishing still steady

More generally good weather last week, with the fishing still steady.

A midweek trip to the Pinnacles saw mainly tarakihi coming up, but  things slowed down and moving back to the shallower water brought more tarakihi, but also a lot of small snapper.

A half day with Rangiora High School rugby players around the Middle Ground meant more little snapper, but  there were some well legal, up to 3kg+ amongst them, plus the usual trevally and rat[small]  kingies, an entertaining afternoon for the boys.

Saturday was similar, but with less of the sizable ones, so we ended up outside Motiti and had  a  good hit on the tarakihi initially, not as long as we’d like, alas.

Sunday was back to the Pinns, some more good tarakihi, but also a good number of skipjack on the lures, a nice  bonus,  we haven’t had that many this season.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    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)
