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.

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

    This is from the… BPT pig  hunting  Whanau

    Cheers

    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)
