Fishing Reports

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

Full moon has always been the best for me

Back to the one day week last week. We had an overnighter Tuesday/ Wednesday but our evening fish was fairly unimpressive, about 6 snapper was all.

It was the dark of the moon though, and we’ve never caught much at night when it is. Some claim the opposite, but the full moon has always been the best for me.

Possibly the difference is the depth, harbour fishing and shallow water could well be better, but I fish deeper , 50m + most of the time, including when crayfishing in the ’80s and the full moon was best.

Anyway, the next morning was slow, and the Hapuku/bass fishing hopeless. No obvious reason, beautiful day  and conditions. No apparent current, in fact we drifted in a different direction every drop, so, that was that.

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

  • 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
