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

Good week of reef fishing with calmer conditions

Another good week of reef  fishing, with calmer conditions making things even nicer.

We’re still working the deeper water. Checking some of the shallower spots we’d normally be catching in at this time produced nothing much, so the season looks like being late, continuing the tendency of the few years.

The water temperature jumped up a couple of degrees over the weekend, with lots of krill and jellyfish around, so theoretically we should see snapper, skippies and gamefish showing up pretty soon.  We’ve had  more trevally being caught in the last few days, another sign that things are starting to pick up.


  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    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!!


    Just to say thank you Brett and Des for making our fishing trip last Sunday so enjoyable. You were both so helpful.We all had a great day and have been eating fish all week!

    Thanks again
