Fishing Reports

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

Good fishing though the swell was a bit more than expected

A quiet week, just the Saturday in, but good fishing though the swell was a bit more than expected at 2/3metres.

A big lazy roll with next to no wind all day meant pretty nice conditions. Our first stop around Brewis saw some nice tarakihi initially, moving onto the Labe when they dropped off. Another good tarakihi bite therewith a few snapper and red snapper, plus the bonus of a small hapuku and a nice kingy. So a good day all around.

Unfortunately we had to cancel an overnighter when the forecast changed to 25 gusting 35knots

A shame as a couple of days earlier it had been looking good. Still, it’s been the best winter for us in a few years.

 

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

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

    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)
