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

Half day charter with the NZ sevens
11 May 2016
0 0

Monday started with a half day charter with the NZ sevens. A bit of a worry after a tough Sunday. Luckily we ran over a bit of sign on the way out and ended up with a good haul of snapper, trevally and kahawai, even a legal kingy.

Tried it again on Thursday, nothing. We worked around the Astrolabe, Brewis, and the Okaparus but pretty hard everywhere.

Saturday we stopped at a few spots before Motiti, but ended up in the deeper water outside the island and started getting tarakihi. A big improvement on the shallow water.

Sunday, it was straight to the deep, and a good consistent day. 

There's still no real pattern to the fishing, very much day to day, it's almost like if you have a good hit one day, go somewhere else the next.

Which is a lot easier said than done.

    Brett & the Manutere, well i must say that over the last 8 years or more i have been out on day & overnight trips plus the TGA game fishing one base & charter tournaments  with Brett, you would be hard pushed to find a better skipper who will do his upmost to put you on the fish !!! & i mean go the extra mile !! literally, always good for a yarn, (fishing, politics, rugby etc etc,) & not forgetting the overnight trips tradditional continental breakfast, beans, eggs, bacon, toast, & a wicked coffee !

    The Manutere is a solid fishing platform of which i have spent many enjoyable hours aboard, and hope to spend many more !!!!

    Cheers Brett, till next time ! (soon)
