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

  • Thanks for a fabulous day on the water. Just ate some great fish and washed it down with nz Pinot.

    Ross the Aussie

  • 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
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
