Fishing Reports

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

Hapuku trips, good days, beautiful conditions and a good selection of fish

We couldn’t have asked for a better start to the new year as far as the weather goes, it’s been great.

The predominating East and Northerly winds have brought in the warmer water and we’re seeing more skippies and quite a few albacore inside the 100metre line.

We did a day Hapuku trip and had a good day, beautiful conditions and a good selection of fish, mainly bluenose with a couple of bass and also 2 big rays bream.

The bottom fishing’s still up and down, the deeper water is more consistent, but the fish are starting to show up more regularly in close. Another area which will improve with the warmer water.

    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)

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen
