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.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Hi there Brett, just a quick thank you for the lovely fishing trip we had today.

    Myself my wife and parents had a fantastic time.

    It may have been a bit choppy today but luckily my family didn't supply any extra burley and really enjoyed the trip. We have about 2kgs of Terakihi filets in the fridge which we look forward to enjoying tomorrow.

    After trying different charter boats I have found Tauranga Marine Charters by far the best.

    We really appreciate you helping and guiding my wife and parents who are first time fishers to get set up and get onto some fish.

    Looking forward to doing it again sometime.

    Many thanks
    Aaron
