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.

    They had a great time and a special thanks to Brett for making the day so enjoyable for them!!! Jordan has not stopped talking about his day out fishing and has been proudly showing the photos of his day to everyone he comes into contact with!! They would love to go out again next year if we return to the BOP if Brett would have them on board again!!
     
    Regards,
    Lynne.

    Brett & the Manutere, well i must say that over the last 8 years or more i have been out on day & overnight trips plus the TGA game fishing one base & charter tournaments  with Brett, you would be hard pushed to find a better skipper who will do his upmost to put you on the fish !!! & i mean go the extra mile !! literally, always good for a yarn, (fishing, politics, rugby etc etc,) & not forgetting the overnight trips tradditional continental breakfast, beans, eggs, bacon, toast, & a wicked coffee !

    The Manutere is a solid fishing platform of which i have spent many enjoyable hours aboard, and hope to spend many more !!!!

    Cheers Brett, till next time ! (soon)
