Fishing Reports

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

It's been another interesting year

It’s been another interesting year, aren’t they all. We had good fishing from the new year, and the best winter in a long time up until August, and a couple of the wettest ever months.

Things started to pick up  in October, and  November/December have been as settled as I’ve seen, although as is usual the fishing’s hit and miss with the warmer waters coming down from the tropics.

The big moons have had an effect on the volatile conditions also, with some radical current shifts adding to the on again off again nature to the mix.

If the current conditions continue, it could be an exceptional summer.  I hope that’s not the kiss of death. I hate predictions.

Anyway here’s to a good Christmas and a productive New Year.

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

  • Thank you for a great day yesterday. The trip was a surprise getaway for Robs 60th birthday and none of us had done a charter trip before nor can we fish for Terakihi as snapper, trevally and kingfish are target species in the Coromandel. 

    A most enjoyable day

    Regards

  • 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
