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

Guys from Vanuatu out celebrating their Independence Day

Nothing much happening through the week, but the weekend was good. Well the fishing was good, but the weather on Saturday was a lot worse than the forecast.

Quite nice initially, but the SW that was supposed to  ease steadily picked up to 30 odd knots forcing us in to the shallower water, which  performed quite well, with snapper and tarakihi mainly.

One bonus was we had a good escort of dolphins on the way out, and a whale spouted several times close by, not that common a sight and always to see.

Sunday the forecast was on the money, a beautiful day, good fishing and an excellent group of guys from Vanuatu out celebrating their Independence Day.

More than made up for the sloppy Saturday

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • 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
