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.


  • 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

    Hi Daphne

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks to Brett for the great day yesterday. Boys had a heap of fun, especially once over the touch of motion sickness, and were very thrilled to catch some fish. They are in the fridge for a feast tonight!

    Hope to get back before too long and do it all again.

    Kind Regards
    Jo Davis
