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.

  • 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

    Paul
