Fishing Reports

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

Incessant Winds
7 October 2014

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

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

  • Thanks for a fabulous day on the water. Just ate some great fish and washed it down with nz Pinot.

They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!
