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

Hapuku trip went well, topped with a 20kg+ kingie

Another 1 day week thanks to a sloppy N.E.  on Saturday, but it settled nicely through Sunday and our public day Hapuku trip went well.

We picked up some skippies on the way out, so plenty of fresh bait. The drifts went well, with bluenose up to 10kg being caught, and one drift producing  bluenose, gemfish, a couple of bass and a big kingfish. It went 22kg on our suspect scales, pretty sure it was a bit heavier than that, but a nice bonus fish nonetheless.

We have caught a few in the deep water, but that was the first for quite a while.  It had several  alfonsino in it, which we also haven’t seen in a while, so hopefully the predominant N.E. we’ve had continue to bring the fish in closer.

    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)

  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

    Regards
