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

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!!

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron
