Fishing Reports

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

Increase in temperature over the past week

We’ve seen an increase in temperature over the past week, the days are looking more settled in general which is nice. Didn’t manage to get out last weekend due to the tail end of some bad weather, but the signs are shaping up for a good summer.

The fish we have been catching have been in nice fat condition, but the bite times still seem to be dependent on the current, usual story, but some nice sized schools of bait fish starting to show up which is a good sign.

We’ve heard from a few of the locals that there’s  a bit more fish activity some of the beach fishermen and down towards Maketu are seeing tarakihi and snapper in the shallower water so we’ll be checking that out, as well as doing some of the deeper spots we have been doing ok at.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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

  • 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
