Fishing Reports

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

Good run of weather continues

We’ve had another busy week as the good run of weather continues. The fishing continues to be quite variable, but overall, not too bad, with the deeper water more consistent.

One thing that’s on the increase is the amount of barracuda around. It is normal for this time of year, but it’s always a pain to see them working their usual magic on the gear. They surely can give hooks and sinkers a snipping time, and they’re in both the shallow and deeper water at present.

All part of the fun though.

Even though we’ve seen plenty of box jellyfish around, the water temperature’s still on the low side, so we haven’t seen as much fish in close as we normally would, partly explaining why the sea lettuce is so thick at present, still one decent N/NE blow could change that quickly.

    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)
