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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    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

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!
     
    Regards,
    Lynne.

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
