Fishing Reports

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

  • 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
     

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers

    Paul
