Fishing Reports

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

June unpleasant, July is at least off to a good start
1 July 2014

June was quite unpleasant weatherwise, very volatile with lows, highs, storms and fronts pretty well nonstop. There’s got to be at least one winter month that’s a writeoff and hopefully that’s the only one.

July is at least off to a good start, calm and sunny, here’s hoping it continues.

We got out on Sunday, a beautiful day, but found a lot of current at the Pinns, so went to Mayor, where we got a short bite before things went dead again. After trying different  depths and areas for  no result, we tried a few more spots on the way home with no more success, less current and ok sign but just nothing happening.

One of those days better for  the fish than the fishers.


  • Just a quick email to thank you for a nice fishing trip today. Very enjoyable. Weather was kind to us and everyone caught fish.

    Hopefully will return to the Mount again next year, in which case I will check you out for another trip.

  • Hi Daphne ,

    Please thank Brett for a great trip the other day

    We didn’t get on to the Kingi’s on this occasion but we do appreciate the conditions were against us and we know Brett did everything possible . Still, everyone got plenty of fillets to take home and we thoroughly enjoyed the day

    You will see us again and we will recommend you

  • 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
