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

  • 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 there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
