Fishing Reports

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

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    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.

  • Hi Daphne ,

    Please thank Brett for a great trip the other day

    We didn’t get on to the Kingi’s on this occasion but we do appreciate the conditions were against us and we know Brett did everything possible . Still, everyone got plenty of fillets to take home and we thoroughly enjoyed the day

    You will see us again and we will recommend you
