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

Incessant Winds

Another nonevent type week, with a couple more trips cancelled due to the incessant winds. I suppose it is the time of year partly, that equinoxal period, but it is wearing a bit thin.

I even did something we hardly ever do, and that was come home early on Wednesday. When I saw the size of the swell rolling over Matakana bar I nearly turned round then, but pressed on, checked out a half dozen different marks for no sign and no fish at all and pulled the pin. The swell was 2-3 times what was predicted, a heavy ground swell as well, so we flagged it.

We talked to a skipper who stayed out for longer, he got nothing also, so the right call in the circumstances, but cold comfort.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 5.1.2010

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.

    THANK YOU AGAIN!!

    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare

  • Good afternoon Brett,

    Thanks for the memorable trip on Tuesday. This was a great experience once again and i have picked up some more tips which i can carry forward, your knowledge is extensive and you don\'t mind passing this on. Not only was the fishing great but i meet new people and have been lucky to share this experience with them. Even Kent the visitor from Australia enjoyed himself and the chilly bins were full of beautiful Terakihi which all the families have enjoyed eating.

    I look forward to joining you again very soon on the boat on another trip.

    Thanks again till then. Theo
