Fishing Reports

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

Good catches and a few limits caught
18 April 2017
0 0

Luckily the weather wasn’t quite as dire for Tauranga as predicted. Pretty ugly, but it did pass quickly.

There was still a fair NE swell running on Saturday,  quite fishable though, and we did  well, with good catches and  a few limits caught. We even got 4 skippies, the most all season

Monday was nicer still, more settled and continuing good catches of tarakihi, trevally and snapper.

The beginning of the season didn’t look  that promising, and it’s been a bit  different, everything seems later, continuing a  trend of the last few years, but overall it’s been a good one for us in terms of both fishable days and fish caught.

The next couple of months are generally good ones, so it’ll be nice if that trend continues.

    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)
