Fishing Reports

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

Good day, good sized tarakihi mainly with a few nice snapper

Some good settled weather and calm seas made for a good week.

Mainly worked around Motiti and had generally good fishing. After  a slow day around the  Labe and outside Motiti on Friday we gave Town Pt a go, not having been there since last season, and had a good day, good sized tarakihi mainly with a few nice snapper among them.

Naturally went there Sunday expecting a similar day but overnight things had changed enough that we barely caught a fish, so back outside Motiti where we finally found a few feeding, it actually picked up a bit and ended up quite steady fishing, luckily because it was looking like a total bust for most of the day.


  • Hi Daphne ,

    Please thank Brett for a great trip the other day

    We didn’t get on to the Kingi’s on this occasion but we do appreciate the conditions were against us and we know Brett did everything possible . Still, everyone got plenty of fillets to take home and we thoroughly enjoyed the day

    You will see us again and we will recommend you

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
