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

Good fishing, with a few undersize kingies as well

We got Thursday in, working around the Brewis area initially, with a decent haul of tarakihi before it quietened down, then out towards the Astrolabe and likewise, good fishing, with a few undersize kingies as well.

We had a hapuku trip planned for Saturday, but the forecast , 25/35kn SW was too much so we canned it. Not for the 1st time, the forecast was well out, light winds all day, so quite frustrating.

Sunday's forecast was  for lighter westerlies, and, it blew stronger SW, so a bouncier day than expected. The fishing was a bit slower, but we ended up finding enough outside Motiti to make for a decent day.

It would be nice if the forecasts were kept simpler, the more complicated they make them, the more inaccurate they seem to be

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

    Brett, just a note to thank you and Wade for looking after us and helping with the filleting (well.... doing most of the fish).

    Every one passes on thier thanks, and wishes you the best for the season.

  • 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
