Fishing Reports

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

Great conditions, and productive hapuka fishing

Things are picking up with the better weather and work groups end of year bonus trips.

We've been going  outside Motiti but after 2 slower days we went out to the Pinns, which was a good move as they were considerably more bitey, and we had a few nice snapper as well.

We had a day bluenose trip on Sunday, and they were going well, with everyone  taking home at least  6 or more nice fish. They've been increasing in numbers for the last 2 or 3 seasons and the trend continues. We're also seeing more  bass and the odd hapuku around, after them being a bit hard to find for a while, probably due to the improvement in weather patterns.

The weather has been great, and continues to look settled for Christmas, so hopefully the long range forecast is right this  time around.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul
