Fishing Reports

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

Good fishing but the weather was quite volatile

We seem to have missed a lot of bad weather with our break in Cairns, so a double win.  Ben had 1 good day out and that was about it, bad weather the rest of the  time.

We had bookings for the weekend and got Saturday in, good fishing but the weather was quite volatile, some rain, and cross currents  and more wind than forecast, so I canned Sunday’s trip, which turned out to be a mistake because it seemed we got Sunday’s forecast on Saturday and the forecast wind didn’t eventuate.

Still, it’s looking more settled for the next week and we’re getting more bookings as the days open up, so looking good for Spring.

    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)

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
