Fishing Reports

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)

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

    Once again  Brett thank you and   son Ben for a trip that we will talk about for a long time
