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

    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)

  • 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
