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

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.


    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare


    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!

  • Hi Daphne ,

    Please thank Brett for a great trip the other day

    We didn’t get on to the Kingi’s on this occasion but we do appreciate the conditions were against us and we know Brett did everything possible . Still, everyone got plenty of fillets to take home and we thoroughly enjoyed the day

    You will see us again and we will recommend you
