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

    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)
