Fishing Reports

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

Large tarakihi from an area East of the Okaparu

Still fairly static as far as the bottom fishing goes, with no evidence of anything much in the shallow water yet, apart from some very small snapper that is.

We did pull some large tarakihi from an area  East of the Okaparus in around 40m, but not enough to spend too long there, so the deeper water is still the best bet at the moment.

Working around Brewis shoals was more of the same, with some small  snapper and not much else, although we struck a school of red snapper that went quite hard while they were around, so that bumped the tallies up nicely.

Talking to a friend on Sunday, and he was saying that the water temp out wide is over 16* so with the predominating easterlies bringing in the warmer water we might see a bit more action in shallow soon.

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • 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
