Fishing Reports

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

Good trip early in the week, getting tougher along with the weather

Our Tuesday trip was another good one, with a mix of snapper, tarakihi and a few red snapper once again keeping everyone occupied.

An Easterly picked up in speed over the next few days, meaning our Friday trip was a bit sad. A mixture of N.E, East, and S.E. wind created a sloppy sea that forced us to stay behind Motiti until it steadied from the N.E.

There wasn’t much sign and the fishing reflected this with very little caught until we worked outside the Okaparus, and even then it was a short bite time before the snapper dried up.  A disappointing day, which carried over to the weekend with increasing wind meaning no further trips

  • 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
