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.



    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!!

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

  • 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
