Fishing Reports

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

Good numbers of skippies coming up on the lures

Only a couple of days last week, the weather’s getting more variable now.

We went out Tuesday and had another good day with another good mix of tarakihi and snapper, and yet again, good numbers of skippies coming up on the lures.

We’ve caught more of them in the last few trips than over the whole of the summer. Although the South and SWesterlies coming up will probably push them back to the tropics.

Too much SW for the Saturday, but we got the Sunday in. A bit sloppier than forecasted, the wind didn’t really drop like the forecast predicted so the Metservice were a bit out there. But generally their forecasting has been quite a bit better.

They went through a long period where they were very accurate, then got quite bad for the last few years, so hopefully they’ll continue to be on the money.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen

Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!
