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

Good fishing in more areas, and great weather

March has been excellent so far, good fishing in more areas, and great weather.

We had some good days in the deeper water, although a lot of current on Friday slowed things down. Saturday was a cruise,  a stag do in the harbour for a few hours before trying around Karewa and having a good hit on snapper before it was time to head in.

We’d had a short day earlier in the week where I’d thought the middle ground might be worth another look. Wrong. A few snapper was it, so it’s still the area to avoid for me.

Sunday we worked around the Okaparus and west of Motiti and had another good day on snapper, and tarakihi once we got outside Motiti. Another great day weatherwise too.

We saw a couple of marlin jumping inside Mayor earlier in the week, and it sounds as if the One Base competitors also had a good comp., so good for all.

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen
