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.

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! 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, 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

    Paul
