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

Good weather last week

Well, woohoo, we had some good weather last week and actually got 3 days fishing in. The first time for about 2 months. The fishing continued to be pretty good too.

Our midweek trip around  Brewis and the Lab saw mainly tarakihi coming up, with a legal kingy as well as the usual odd snapper and red snapper.

Saturday was a bit sloppier, but fishable, and also a good day overall.

Sunday was a particularly nice day but the current had picked up overnight and things  slowed down a lot so we took a punt and headed outside Motiti. This paid off as there was nowhere near the current and the tarakihi were a lot livelier. So it ended up another good day for all. And the coming week’s weather looks ok too.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo

  • 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
