Fishing Reports

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

It seems like something's wrong if it isn't blowing about 30 knots

Well, spring has sprung, and it’s certainly bouncing off the wall or ionosphere or whatever. It seems like something’s wrong if it isn’t blowing about 30 knots.

We got the usual one day in last week, and that was Monday, quite a good day too, much the same as previously a good mix of snapper and tarakihi.

Still not  a lot of sign in close, but we’ve had a couple of reports that they might finally be starting to move in, which would be well due.

I prefer fishing the deeper water, more variety and generally size too, but it is nice to wind up from 20 or 30m just for a change and this is the time of year when they should be closer. Time will tell.

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

  • What more can I say but once again simply magic mate, The Northpower Rotorua boy’s head back inland with a bounty of fresh fish and memories worthy of a book.

    We have utilised your services on a few occasions and each time has been memorable taking home more than our fair share of fish, but this trip was exceptional.

    I have been charter fishing with various parties and skippers but never have I been on an overnighter to Mayor and been home by 1130am with six plus hours of fishing left and chilly bins full of Snapper and Tarakihi, needless to say you had 10 very happy Northpower fisho's.

    Cheers to Ben and Wade for their assistance, and for creating a little healthy competition amongst us, and for putting up with Les and his goofy photo poses all good fun mate, what a fantastic trip.

    In fishing terms Brett you’re all keepers that more than measure up, look forward to the next trip or ten.

    Kindest Regards
    The Northpower Rotorua Boys
