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

Good snapper around the Okaparus

A few days off this week as we slipped the Manutere for a bottom clean and antifouling.

A good time to do it as the weather was fairly ordinary, the rain not helping with the painting initially, but was ok by Thursday.

We had a short day on the Friday, so worked a bit closer to home. Not a lot initially around the under 30m areas, but we found good snapper around the Okaparus, and tarakihi as well a bit further out.

Sunday we headed out deeper, and had some good fishing around the Pinns, which lasted till about 11.30, then it all went pretty quiet.

We fishing our way back, from 65  to under 30m but got very little more, good conditions, they just weren’t hungry. Oh, and we caught another skippy, fifth for the season!

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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
     

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron

  • 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

    Paul
