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.

  • 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

    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)
