Fishing Reports

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

It's certainly not dull at present, frustrating sometimes though

Another week of  ups and downs with the fishing We went outside Motiti where we’ve done quite well in the past but had a  slow day, finally getting onto fish on the Western end.

Saturday we went to the Pinns, a beautiful day and good fishing, with big trevally, tarakihi, and red snapper and snapper going well.

Sunday we went back out, conditions good but not quite as nice as  Saturday, and it was really hard. The wind picked up,  so we tried an alternative mark in a bit closer , and luckily it paid off, with a good hard hit of tarakihi which made the day. It’s certainly not dull at present, frustrating sometimes though.

    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)

  • 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
