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

Good steady fishing around Motiti
6 March 2018

We got off to a good start to the week on Tuesday with light winds and good steady fishing around Motiti.

The snapper are in good numbers in the 20 to 40m depths with  plenty of nice sized ones  among them. We got onto the tarakihi in the deeper water so a pleasant productive day.

Wednesday’s forecast was identical, but it was a different ocean outside the entrance, with a very unsettled sloppy sea, and no complaints when we canned the trip.

A current from the West with an easterly swell against it was the problem, and just a bit more wind made all the difference.

The Easterly continued  through the rest of the week, effectively killing the weekend, although we fished the harbour on Friday for the Seeka fishing contest.

Not exactly red hot fishing, but we got a few snapper and a reasonable number of kahawai and trevally so not too bad considering.

 

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 6.12.2012

    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.

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys

  • 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
