Fishing Reports

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

I hope this La Ninya pattern stays

Still pretty reasonable fishing overall, although an overnighter to Mayor was a toughie, heaps of current all around the island. The Eastern side produced some tarakihi, and a few small kingies outside Honeymoon Bay, but the lightning show was  the highpoint [and the torrential rainstorm].

Around Motiti and Brewis/Astrolabe has been quite consistent, but you have to keep moving, catch the hungry ones  and move on.

I hope this La Ninya pattern stays, I’m not a big fan of El Nino and the constant N.W to S.W winds, but as they say, be careful you might get what you wish for.

So, we’ll see.

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

  • 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
